Migration of Faith and Religion

 

The France satirical Newspaper killings of early Jan 2015 calls for an overview

Mankind has travelled with his Faith and/or with his Religion since time memorial; that has at times brought strife but mostly on small regional scale in the early days when the world was mostly inhabited by tribes.

Make no mistake, all mankind consist of some tribal past.

In that context Faiths and/or Religions sometimes rubbed shoulders and often rendered other differences indistinct.

During the Colonial times large numbers of migrants brought entire new Faiths with them and actually much too often it was the incoming Faith that tried to convert the local ones. Fortunately for the World these efforts were not always successful.

When Colonialism was reversed, starting around the beginning of 1960, the old mother countries couldn’t ask and certainly did not endeavor to do so with the result that when the original colonial citizens took up their automatic right of citizenship in their old mother countries, some of the latter were almost swamped by new waves of new Faiths. Events between 1990 and 2000 clearly indicate that nobody had ever given this possibility any consideration or even considered the possibilities and effects.

What might have been a situation of ‘we don’t ask and you don’t tell’ soon became a matter of ‘and who in hell are you to tell me; get lost you silly idiot’ and another dead body on the ground.

In the beginning of time America legislated to ensure Freedom of Religion [though some may disagree with my choice of words] with the 2nd Amendment in an effort to prevent the problem becoming one and it worked for Old America, worked very well indeed I would add.

However, though others have tried to create their own secular societies modern life and new definitions of things have often produced mongrel societies which have turned anti-religious. We can no longer rely on our tribal codes of conduct and our human heritage; the small worlds of our ancestors have turned into one unholy mess where it is difficult to recognize the melting pot from the sewage hole even though both are overflowing.

Have we finally reached the stage where Freedom of the Press has not only become Freedom of Expression to burn the Flag; when Freedom of the Media means Freedom to insult another Man’s Faith and how far are we from Freedom of the Black Races to Kill anyone carrying a White Flag?

Don’t shout at me for saying Charlie Hebdo must change his form of Satire or prepare to meet his Maker. Allow me to be straight please; Hebdo continuing his brand of Freedom doesn’t have much of a chance in the longevity stakes and you won’t see me shedding tears every time another Hebdo bites the dust.

“Congress shall not make any law ……? Wasn’t that what they said? Or is now like the story of the Big War: “One day they came for Isaac, …. then they came for Solly …. and when they came for you there was nobody left to talk for you?”

 PS: No time or space left to discuss Freedom of the Internet. Thus a note of warning will have to suffice. Spend your money; blow it at the Casino if you have to, before it disappears anyway courtesy of Freedom of the Internet.
