Ironic position

I note with some alarm the irony in the letter titled “Who is more deadly?” From the letter: “… it’s the faith that even though each of us is a flawed human being, God offers us redemption. How extreme is that?” Unfortunately, the unspoken part of that position is that, according to that same faith and belief system, if you don’t share those beliefs you are doomed to hell for all eternity.

Yes, Islamic fundamentalists kill thousands in the name of their religion. But you would damn untold billions to eternal damnation because they don’t believe what you believe. How extreme is that?!
