I’m trying to choose a religion, and I suppose as a result of being raised Christian, I am more drawn to monotheistic religions. Today something occurred to me: Christians and Muslims both have a history of using religion to justify violence and ridiculous wars, but Jews don’t. Or at least it was never mentioned in history class. I mean, I remember reading about wars in the Old Testament during Sunday School, but that’s pretty different from what Christians and Muslims have done. Have Jews ever done the kind of insane stuff that Christians have done in the name of religion? If not (or if it’s just happened once or twice), that would point to Judaism being the truth. I really hope nobody takes this the wrong way…
