The Religious Rule

O Lord our Father, our young patriots, idols of our hearts, go forth to battle -- be Thou near them! With them -- in spirit -- we also go forth from the sweet peace of our beloved firesides to smite the foe. O Lord our God, help us to tear their soldiers to bloody shreds with our shells; help us to cover their smiling fields with the pale forms of their patriot dead; help us to drown the thunder of the guns with the shrieks of their wounded, writhing in pain; help us to lay waste their humble homes with a hurricane of fire; help us to wring the hearts of their unoffending widows with unavailing grief; help us to turn them out roofless with little children to wander unfriended the wastes of their desolated land in rags and hunger and thirst, sports of the sun flames of summer and the icy winds of winter, broken in spirit, worn with travail, imploring Thee for the refuge of the grave and denied it -- for our sakes who adore Thee, Lord, blast their hopes, blight their lives, protract their bitter pilgrimage, make heavy their steps, water their way with their tears, stain the white snow with the blood of their wounded feet! We ask it, in the spirit of love, of Him Who is the Source of Love, and Who is the ever-faithful refuge and friend of all that are sore beset and seek His aid with humble and contrite hearts. Amen. ["The War Prayer," by Mark Twain. Written approximately 1904-05; quoted from Albert Bigelow Paine, ed., Europe and Elsewhere.]

Pakistan Under Musharraf Military Regime, And The Question Of Religious Fundamentalism

It is been over four years that General Musharaf is been in power. Three years with a naked military regime and the last one year with a so-called democratic government and he as a president. General Musharaf is a lucky military dictator who realised the changed world situation after 11th September 2001 so he changed his policies overnight to become a partner of American imperialism in the "fight against terrorism". He, at least in words, changed his life time support to religious fundamentalist and to some extent abandoned them without any shame or apology.

On Behalf of Religious Followers

Introduction In our world, in the nations of this planet, the societies and government that compromise among each other in each region, there seems to be an almost universal taboo in the cultures that have formed. It may be stated by every historian that one of the single, common aspects of every civilization was that it had a form of religion, a creed, a superstition, a mystical outlook in what the scrolls had deemed as a new world. We have come lightyears in technology and science from those humble, honest beginnings. Wars have scorched the earth as much as literature has pushed the boundaries of human thought. Empires have been built by legions and archaelogists sifted through the ashes finding what may have been copper and bronze toys.

Human Life is Sacred

There are many arguments by religious people today in defense of the idea of what is sacred and what is not. Many of the people who profess to believe in god are convinced that they have a very close, personal relationship with their creator; some are not as convinced of this proposition, and allow the idea of god or spirits to enter their lives only when every other means has failed. For those whose lives are focused around religion, their beliefs and ideas about society or government will have the influence of the doctrines of their church, temple, or synagogue. Their support or opposition to one social movement may primarily be motivated by their religious ideals.
