Preaching Love Doesn't Translate Well - Bad Christians

Another page from the WTF circular bin.

Why is it that the fundamental principles taught by Jesus during his 30 some years are lost on the all but the most progressive Christians.  Now Eastern Orthadox Greeks and Armenians are FIGHTING/BRAWLING at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher - the supposed place of the crucifixion, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

How messed up as a religion do we have to be to take the most fundamental principle of our faith - LOVE THY NEIGHBOR and LOVE THY GOD and just totally fuck them up?  We cannot even manage two simple rules from Christ - what makes people think they would be able to manage any of the other rules in life or society. 

I think religion is a good foundation for moral and ethical belief system - but to take words written by men, thousands of years ago and to apply them to today's society is just wrong. 

Love Thy Neighbor - doesn't mean - have a fight at my tomb because you want pissing rights there.

I hope, someday, to make it to Isreal to see the land were Jesus walked and to see the places that he saw.  But I am under no delusion that my religion has any specific right to that land because he walked there 2000 years ago. 

The article above is just insane and wrong on so many levels.
