Letter to the Editor
There really is no moral difference between abortion doctor killer Paul Hill who was just executed in Florida for the murder of a doctor and his bodyguard and the terrorists who crashed the planes into the world trade center. Both were religious terrorists using God as an excuse for mass murder and thinking of themselves as martyr to encourage others to murder for God. Whether Christian or Muslim – murder is murder – there’s no difference.
Is God so impotent that he needs people like Paul Hill to murder doctors in his behalf? Is Jesus really that lame? Paul Hill is certianly not someone I want to be in Heaven with. Sure not going to win any souls here! What’s scary is that there are a lot of Christian in America who actually believe in killing for Jesus. But as far as I’m concerned it’s Christians like Paul Hill that make me thank God I’m an atheist.
So – where is Paul Hill now? Is he in Heaven or Hell? Neither. Paul Hill has ceased to exist. The problem with the concept of Heaven and Hell is – who goes where. The hijackers who killed 3000 people think that they would go to Heaven and be rewarded with 70 virgins. Do you think they are up there with 70 virgins? Not hardly! But – Paul Hill? Not hardly either.
The problem with those who believe this is “God’s Work” is – why doesn’t God do it himself? To believe in Hill is to believe that God is so lame that he can’t kill people himself so God needs assassins who will do the killing for him. It is to say that God is an impotent psycopathic murderer who would like to kill himself but gets Christians to kill for him. Is this the kind of diety that I want to worship? Yeah right!
If this were actually true then God is the problem – not the solution. But – this will provide a moral masturbation experience for a lot of holier than thou bible thumpers who will get a self rightous rush out of thinking they are God’s warriers in the battle against Satan.
