Abba legend Bj√∂rn Ulvaeus has made veiled criticisms of Islam in a wide-ranging interview with the Wall Street Journal saying "less religion in the world would be better".
"Look at all the misery in the Middle East for example. All these countries have Islam in common, and far too few dare to criticize Islam as an ideology, and what it's doing to these countries," the 68-year-old told the paper.
"I know I might get punched in the face for saying these things, but my conviction is that less religion in the world would be better."
Ulvaeus, who caused controversy earlier this year for making insensitive comments about the Boston Marathon disaster, was keen to point out his views weren't targeted towards a particular faith or people who practice religion....
My, my, though I was raised on an acreage and not a farm, I will have to admit, but when children were raised in a bucolic which many of you yearn for (you can bet many a farmer's wife doesn't ) The birds and bees, besides cattle, goats, dogs, cats, don't have to be explained to children.
The libraries around here, I was reminded of recently when I availed myself of their uncensored wi-fi services (Go! Lincoln Library system!) not only have children sections, but even children reading programs, since the time I was there, I'm pretty sure they weren't reading from "Playboy" magazine to the kiddies. I really do hope they can get a copy containing, Chicken Little, "The sky is falling! the sky is falling!" Hmm, probably can get that in the final episode of CBS's The Dome, without even going out of their house, or a friend's house if they can't watch it at home?
I would say there are many, many worse places than a library for kids to be at, and it wouldn't even hurt for parents to go with them to it -- providing they can read of course.
"Less religion in the world would be better." It amazes me how these dumb atheist come out and tell everyone that religion is the root of worlds problems when they have no rational way of explaining morality in the first place. Apart from God there is no way of justifying morality. I do believe on the other hand that most religions in the world like Islam and especially Roman Catholicism are responsible for some of the most atrocious crimes against humanity. However true Bible believing Christianity is not a source of the world's problem but its only hope.
""There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life," he said in a column published on The Local."
You have to pity these poor sad reprobates on their way to hell. The shock on their faces when they get into the spiritual realm and in front of Christ for judgment will be phenomenal. Their ignorance will be something which they will realise is the part of condemnation which will hurt the most. Imagine the look on the face of this guy as he comes before Christ and suddenly realises he was wrong and ignorant of the truth. There will be many who take this path to eternal suffering, misery and hell.
