Christians And "Christians" Choose Mercy, Love & Forgiveness, Or Retribution & Punishment

James' Epistle: "Judgment Without Mercy Will Be Shown To Anyone Who Has Not Shown Mercy"



Alan: Across every ideological boundary, the self-righteous share one conviction, that they -- and only they -- are absolutely right; so right that they feel entitled to slaughter infidels and are made giddy by the eternal torment of the dead.

In the minds of the malicious -- punctilious and devout as they may be -- mercy, compassion, love and forgiveness are forever trumped by vengeance, punishment and retribution.
