tough bread to chew. lots of interesting passages especially when Jesus questioning the silence of his God. and it is actually much depends on how you perceive the words of A GOD.

one thing I'm sure is quite true though:
'And from time to time, to distract the people from their miseries and fire them with anger against someone else, the governors of this church will declare that such-and-such a nation or such-and-such a people is evil and ought to be destroyed, and they'll gather great armies and set off to kill and burn and loot and rape and plunder, and they'll raise their standard over the smoking ruins of what was once a fair and prosperous land and declare that God's Kingdom is so much the larger and more magnificent as a result.

i think every major religions "authorities" in this world, in one way or another, in one time or another, have fallen prey to the same vanity, thus condemning other nation/people as evil and put death sentences to that nation/people claiming it as the will of God. I wonder which God? for I wouldn't care for THAT kind of God.
