And the worst thing about it is that when a war is caused by religion, it is given a "holy" justification leading to all sorts of inhumanity bestowed upon the infidels/apostates/heathens/etc.

Personally - the fact that he can sing this particular song with such conviction is what is so moving to me. He proves that instead of being filled with hate for being blown up as a child one can be filled with love and a desire for change. Great find sanspeur. Wow.

I gotta agree, were it not for the evangelicals, there would not be anywhere near as many atheists as there are today. The greatest danger to christianity is itself.
