Back from son's last night. OH told me about Nice, so very sad.
Things were hectic at son's yesterday, they were preparing to go on holiday but they are renovating their house and had a plumber in and were expecting a mason who didn't turn up. So we hadn't seen the news. I was looking after the granddaughters and trying to clean up mess and do washing up. DIL was removing the old plaster and exposing a stone wall in the sitting room. Dust everywhere!
I agree with Topbird when she said "And IMO a good life or person is all about kindness, compassion, courtesy and tolerance.
The people who commit these atrocities show none of those qualities. If there is an after life - they must be going to hell in a handcart. I have never seen a religious text which promotes the killing of innocent, decent people and their children - I have only heard twisted minds corrupting various religious teachings for their own ends."
Christianity teaches "love God and love your neighbour". It's people themselves who commit the violence and corruption. ISIL claim that the terrorist was one of them, but people who knew him say he wasn't religious but he was suffering from depression. Whatever it was, it was a dreadful thing to happen and so sad for the people who died and their families.
