Self-righteous?

 

Last updated 8/30/2007 at Noon



What makes Robert E. Green think that his opinions are the only truth and anyone who has a different point of view is automatically wrong? That self-righteousness is dangerous! In the 16th and 17th centuries, if the self-righteous had the power, they executed the “heretics” whose only crime was to see things differently.

There is a problem today in that Islamic Fundamentalists believe that non-Muslims (nonbelievers) should be eliminated. Recognizing that the great majority of the followers of Islam live in peace and harmony with their neighbors does not eliminate the problem of the radical few.

Mr. Green should rationally explain how he proposes to deal with that problem instead of simply criticizing the actions of those who are attempting to do so. We live in an imperfect world and it is always easy to see how, after the fact, something could have been done better.

Criticizing is easy.
