It's too bad religious fanatics can't have their very own planet in a distant galaxy in a Universe somewhere far, far away. Some place where radical Jews, born again Christian crusaders, and jihadist Muslim extremists could live together and practice their isms of peace and love for one another. Some place where they could blow the shit out of everything and slaughter the hell out of everybody, thus gaining access to eternal bliss in the paradise of their choice.
Perhaps, with those people gone, all that would be left on Earth would be folks more tolerant for others different from themselves. Maybe people wouldn't be so freakin' hell-bent on cramming their views down the throats of others with divergent ideas. Instead of destroying everything and everyone, the planet would be a better place with more real compassion. A place with far greater odds of surviving the self-distructive addictions of mankind.
Maybe without the psycho-fanatics, man wouldn't have any more self-distructive addictions? Maybe life here would become heavenly.
Of course, I'm just kidding. Banish the thought. That's far too simplistic. But unfortunately the fact remains, we do live amidst these extremist bastards who are just dying for heaven while stuck here in this hell created by them for us all. For that I say to them, thanks a hell of a lot!
