Quote of the Day: Roots of Violence

Thinking about the violence in Mumbai (and so many other places), I found this too true quote by Mahatma Gandhi:

The Roots of Violence:
Wealth without work,
Pleasure without conscience,
Knowledge without character,
Commerce without morality,
Science without humanity,
Worship without sacrifice,
Politics without principles.

Paul the Apostle in his letter to Timothy: 1 Timothy 6:9)

9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.

10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

It's very unfortunate that religious beliefs like those of the Mubai terrorists compelled them to commit such heinous acts. I have always felt that religion is a personal thing. When you have a religion that admonishes, punishes and attacks those who don't adhere to it, it just nullifies all the talk of "loving, benevolent Gods" that the proscribers of that religion speak about. This is true with both (some) Muslims and sorry to say most Evangelical Christians.
