Angels & Demons

Some people might like the discussions but sometimes, they border monotony.  Or uselessness.  I don’t know how the current U.S. security policy ties in with the kingdom living course curriculum, but somehow, it does.  Why else would we spend the past two days discussing 12 “Biblically-rooted” alternatives?  The whole exercise is absurd because we live in a nation that promises religious freedom and tolerance.  Why would such a nation focus on just one religion’s holy text for alternatives?

Eh, I don’t want this to turn into another kingdom living rant.

Instead, I finished Angels & Demons.  Damn good book.  The book isn’t 100% factual, but I really don’t care.  I’m not about to go to Rome and search for the secret Illuminati lair.  The book’s a good read, a good example of historical fiction.  Even when he does say what is “fact”, I’m not going to take him seriously.  He’s still writing historical fiction and that’s what most people forget about his books.

Anyway, I still need to read The Da Vinci Code…>_>

Quite simply, the goal of terrorism is to create terror and fear. Fear undermines faith in the establishment. It weakens the enemy from within…causing unrest in the masses. Write this down. Terrorism is not an expression of rage. Terrorism is a political weapon. Remove a government’s facade of infallibility, and you remove its people’s faith.
