639) Connect the News !

Each of these four pieces of news -that I read on the same day- provoked me to write about, but somehow they are linked together in my brain. It just tell us something about us and the community/ies we are living within, can you figure out the link between these headlines?!

They all have to do with religion. What are they trying to do, to provoke everyone, and drive them away from their believes?

religion obsession and enforcement!! a desperate need to validate beliefs in whatever ways despite the social retaliation on the concept, which was originally caused by imposition of faith...

I am sure there is something that is not quite right. well, I think they contain the things that journalists have decided we should know, and feel involved in, and have an opinion about - and YET everyone is listening to what he needs to hear from himself ( each lives his life in a completely different way )
A series of thoughts cross my mind here.. but I tried to translate them all into a simple question: "how do we know the exact moment when night ends and day begins?"
answer: when a stranger approaches, and we think he is a brother, and all "conflicts" disappear, that is the moment when night ends and day begins. but at first we need to believe that the day exists coz how can they possibly want to see the day, those who dont believe it exists!
mech 3arfa Mohaly, let me think again, maybe I have another comment.

one of my friends has written (in the facebook site): Religions teach violence, hatred & discrimination. Stop lying to yourself & to others!

that is the long night I have mentioned above. I think we should be reasonable.

I am amazed of how we are heading quickly to middle ages again where people are trying to use religion to enforce their power on others!
