If Christianity Disappeared There Would Be Peace On Earth
By James Donahue
If Christianity would miraculously disappear it would bring an end to strife on this planet. Christians have been the force behind all of the great wars, civil strife, witch hunts and mass murders for the past
2,000 years. Some of the worst serial killers in recent years were clearly motivated by the Christian story. For example John
Wayne Gacey raped and murdered 33 young boys, one for each year that Jesus lived.
It was Christianity that sparked the infamous Salem witch trials, drove Andrea Yates to drown her
four beautiful children, stirred the Irish Catholics and Protestants to war against each other, and launched the great Crusades.
It is a pack of Christian Armageddonists now controlling the military keys in Washington and the Pentagon
that are resurrecting the old concept of the Crusades. The Crusades was a 200-year-long series of wars between the Christian
(Roman Catholic) driven armies of Europe against the Moslem "Turks" who controlled the so-called "Holy Land" stretching from
Constanople to Jerusalem.
Although they historically came to an end in 1291, the seven Crusades left scars between the Islamic
people, especially throughout the Middle East, that still influence the thinking of many Moslems. To them, Christians are
considered "infidels" and representatives of Satan himself.
This is why the Moslem world reacted so harshly to a quote by Pope Benedict XVI in September, 2006,
drawn from the writings of a Byzantine emperer of that era. That writing stated that Muhammad brought things "only evil and
inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached."
What that old Nazi did, by rekindling such an ancient quote that should have been left to smoulder
in the rotting books of history, was remind everyone, in the midst of the unjust and illegal Bush war against the Iraqi people,
just how much the actions by our Christian-driven government parallelled those of Pope Urban II, who along with some French
Christian blue-bloods, triggered the first Crusade in 1095.
In a sense, that Christian tyrant tossed gasoline on flames that were already burning out of control.
Thus we are in the midst of an Eighth Crusade.
The Iraq war itself, stirred by a Christian right-wing conservative faction bought and paid-for by
big business interests that profit from war, plus a consideration that control of that nation's oil is vital to our national
security, was founded on a lie
We have always felt that President Bush and his Christian friends in Washington redirected our "War
On Terror" originally launched in Afghanistan against a band of rebels that claimed responsibility for the 9-11 attack, into
Iraq, as a way of triggering events that would start that final world conflict described in Bible prophecy.
Fundamental Christians like George W. Bush believe that this final world war, centered in the Middle
East, would bring their god Jesus back to life and get this mess we have made of our planet, and our governments, all straightened
out in one final swoop.
What Bush and his followers don't understand is that the New Testament is a lie. Jesus was not a god.
He was a gifted magickian, prophet and right-brain thinker who had an important message for the world. But that message was
love, not war. He never advocated the things that the Christians have done in his name over the past 2,000 years.
Jesus would have surely wept if he knew that accused "witches" would be murdered in his name, or that
hundreds of thousands of innocent men, women and children would be slaughtered by swords, bombs and bullets in wars fought
in his name throughout the Middle East, or that unnatural sexual suppression would drive so many people to violant and abnormal
deviant sexual behavior.
Jesus would have been astounded if he had known the extreme divisions that developed between religious
groups, all launched by foolish people who believed that four wonderful "prophets" and teachers, sent to our planet to shift
human consciousness on a new spiritual path during a magical period in history, turned entire nations against one another
in bigotry and hatred.
He would have been sad to see Protestant Christians warring against Catholic Christians in Europe
and Ireland. Muhammud would have been equally sad to see Christians and Hindu people warring against Islamic believers, or
the various sects of Islam killing one another in his name.
These prophets of great wisdom were gifts to humanity, from alien worlds. They came here in an effort
to get us all on a correct spiritual path because they sensed that something was radically wrong with the way humans were
thinking and behaving.
Unfortunately, their message only served to make the issues even worse.
There is something still very wrong with the way most humans are thinking. If we don't figure this
out, and find a way to fix the error, we are going to blow ourselves to smithereens.
For starters, we must vote the Christians out of our government. After that, we would like to see
people waking up and turning away from that deviant belief system before it destroys us all.
