[State] Pray for Paris

Day 2,917, 18:18 Published in USA USA by Department of State

Today, we from eUSA State Department, on behalf of all of eUS wish to extend our most heartfelt condolences to the United States' oldest ally, France, and it's people for their most horrible loss.



“I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.
"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”

― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring


Sincerely,
The State Department

Pray? That's what caused this tragedy in the first place.

Religion didn't kill anyone, terrorists did. Not everyone who practices a religion is a terrorist. Crap like this is why Islam gets such a bad rap. Stereotyping is a terrible, terrible thing.

You took him pointing out that religion in general caused this mess and turned it into him attacking a specific religion, which he did not do. He also did not stereotype. To deny that religion caused this is to say that Islamic extremists don't exist, or to call them something they are not. It would also be to say christian crusaders, murderers of untold amounts, had nothing to do with religion. Religion breeds war. Not any one in specific, but mainly three of them.

Religion does not breed war. The selfish, misguided adventures of man does.

Power breeds war. With or without religion, people would still fight. Power is the only thing that matters, and those without power will go to war for it. That's not going to change if religion is removed.

Prayer didn't cause the attacks. Brutally violent people did. Fanatics of a religion twisting the words of their holy book to their needs. The need to cause fear and panic that gives them power over the helpless. The need to oppress the weak. The need to dominate the strong. Religion is just a means to an end. Getting more power.

Thanks for the support eUSA.

I'm not looking for revenge but justice would be nice.
Down with terror, down with hate!

Gnilraps

This is a nice gesture.

What pisses me off most, though, is that nobody even notices the attacks in Beirut the day before Paris.

And when the attacks were in Nigeria last January, killing over 2,000, nobody gives a crap.

Why not more love for the non-euro nations getting terrorized?

Don't feel personally blamed, it is the entire western media that seems to ignore anything outside of its own little bubble.

Its easy to vilify that which we are not familiar. If we had compassion, and care for human life which extends out of our direct "bubble" or network, maybe we wouldn't let our government get away with the atrocities that they do, and vise versa. Our world is a victim of close mindedness, and even in our own country hate and ignorance runs rampant.

To say that the french have my condolences and sympathy is an understatement. When people are hurting other people, we all lose a little more of our humanity. RIP to the innocent fallen in this situation as well as every situation such as this.

The Beirut attacks were covered quite broadly on the NL news though. But people are retarded as fuck, so what can you do other than stop giving a fuck about all of it eh.

Pray if you must, but also next Friday night go out to see a show, attend a game, go out for dinner and be sure to say "Fuck those pathetic flaming arseholes." if the topic of Daesh comes up.
