I join with many past and future Miss America wannabes in declaring that I, too, desire world peace. I would love world peace. My God Jesus Christ is called The Prince of Peace. So that proves, right there, that I’m all in for peace.
I guess the biggest thing getting in the way of world peace is religion. If everyone was the same religion, world peace could probably actually happen.
But people are definitely not the same religion. So that’s a problem.
It’s those stupid Muslims!
The problem with Muslims is that they think their God is the one true God. It’s insane. And what makes it triply insane is that no Muslim will be really happy until everyone else in the world is Muslim. It’s an important part of their faith! They’re absolutely convinced that God’s plan is for everyone in the world to become Muslim—or suffer the terrible consequences!
What can you do with maniacs like that? How is it not so obvious to them that God’s plan is for everyone in the world to become Christian—or suffer the terrible consequences! We know that’s true! It’s an important part of our faith!
Those people are just so very, very stubborn.
Well, with regards to realizing world peace—which, again, I really, really want to see happen; I almost feel like Jesus commanded all of his followers to do their darndest to help make it happen—we’ve very definitely got ourselves a conundrum here. Because the bottom line is that we Christians won’t be happy until all the Muslims in the world are Christian, and the Muslims won’t be happy until all the Christians in the world are Muslim.
And all of the people who aren’t either one of those two religions probably isn’t going to be all that keen to give up whatever religion they are, either.
Plus, there’s two different kinds of Christians. Over half of the Christians in the world are Catholic! There’s over one billion of them!
So I guess all the Miss America contestants should really come up with a less impossible goal than world peace. I guess Peace on Earth can’t possibly happen until the end of time, when all that stuff that’s supposed to happen at the End Times finally does. I guess until then death and mayhem based on religious differences will continue to be the norm.
Wouldn’t it be great to experience Peace on Earth right here during Today Times? But I guess all the Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, atheists and whatever else are just too ignorant to ever let that happen.
You’d think God would have made it so that everyone believed in the right religion, wouldn’t you? How easy it would have been for God to have everyone naturally agree on worshiping the right version of him!
But I guess God had other ideas. I guess he wanted to give us free will, instead. I guess he wanted us to have hearts that were free and open to all the emotions of the human experience.
As for our brains? I have no idea what he thought we were going to do with those.
