Laurence Twaddle in an Interview with Association for Defending Victims of Terrorism

All of us want to make the world a better place for everyone. 

 

Association for Defending Victims of Terrorism Public Relations – Laurence Twaddle, minister of Church of Scotland in Geneva, emphasized contradiction between the aims of religions and terrorism.

What do you think about the misuse of religion by terrorist groups?

So this a terrible misuse of religion to take those scriptures and some other to test them around to seek your own ends and to give some spurious Religious justification to do what are doing.

Yes, it is strange how different groups all across the history of, taking a label Christianity Judaism Islam, and have used it to justify the things that they do. Christians who hear about how these religions is about knows that they were not about terror, they were about peace, about brotherhood about sisterhood, were about building bridges not building walls were about caring for one another about loving one another bless the peacemakers. So this a terrible misuse of religion to take those scriptures and some other to test them around to seek your own ends and to give some spurious Religious justification to do what are doing. And many moments of good hearts who love those faiths know that to tarnish them by associating it with terrorism is just ugly and wrong.

 

What measure we can take to prevent terrorists from the abusing the religions?

You would like some kind of dialogue with people who espouse these ugly doctrines.

That is hard one because the people we know ever we do in terms of educate folk around in the world so they don’t immediately associate any particular world faith with active violence so he can tell her children nothing to do that faith about not about that teach in school high ideals

Terrible things to destroy so we can do that you would like some kind of dialogue with people who espouse these ugly doctrines.

I am sure that we can talk and love to sit down with   somebody who tries to justify blowing up of Pixar restaurant an all kinds of folks Muslims, Christians, Jewish, unbelievers. They don’t ask their identity card before deciding who they want to kill. They just do it indiscriminately.

What do you think about the perspective of Christianity about killing of innocent people?

Well, as we say in the UK it does no back in history, no relation to things we have understood as the essence of trust and meaning of Christianity is about fellowship and loving a neighbor not killing a neighbor.

Being peace maker not being warmongers so how do you heal and amend and make better for people make the world better and fill it with .

Love and joy that is Christian perspective so there is disconnect between anyone saying in the name of Jesus Christ and blowing up the shoot up innocents it is utterly illing should person kill person whole Christian ethos and all rouge minded lover of the faith with ever sanctions use of violence or of terrorism.

Being peace maker not being warm makers do heal and amend and make better for people and make the world better.

What do you think about the cooperation between religions in countering terrorism?

[The idea that there] is some connection between religion and terrorism entirely oppose the end of spectrum

I think this is the interest of all of us to make a clear to folk don’t really carefully think about things that we are in the same business we all love God, we want to serve him and we want to make the world became better to be. So all of us to distance ourselves from anything undermines that more creation of people there is some connection between religion and terrorism entirely oppose the end of spectrum and it is a good thing and important exercise to gather the voice people and we like people to know whatever they are  choose to on this label the terrible deeds and to use any religion  for that is twisted corruption of the two thing so yes  I love what you said cooperation and speaking one voice on that subject so there is no doubt that to be religious on to be true believer when you will off course no one wants to bloody hands terrible deeds.

  1. Jesus the Prince of Peace:

    Then said he unto them, But now, he that has a purse, let him take it, and likewise his bag: and he that has no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. –Luke 22:36

    For I say unto you, that unto everyone who has shall be given; and from him that has not, even what he has shall be taken away from him. But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me. –Luke 19:26-27

    Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. –Matthew 10:34-35

    Sometimes a sword really is just a sword.

  2. Who wrote this? Much of it appears to be in need of a proof reader. For example …

    “Being peace maker not being warm makers do heal and amend and make better for people and make the world better.”

    • When we get material from overseas that is being translated into English we do not proof to make it perfect English as that is not our goal, as long as we get the message that is being sent, especially from an NGO in a country under heavy US sanctions which has everyone’s budgets under pressure. Ours for example, here…is zero, and it turn into being a great asset when the FBI thought we were a $30 million a year operation. We appreciate the readers who send us proofing corrections as we always have time to fix. Thanks to all.

  3. The Catholic Church nearly burned Galileo Galilei at the stake for proclaiming that the Sun, not the Earth, was the center of our Solar System. Centuries later they finally admitted Galileo Galilei was right and they were wrong after all. The only amazing thing is they admitted it at all! Today they collect money world wide allegedly for religious purposes, but some of it is used to pay lawyers to get Catholic Priests out of child molestation charges. Isn’t something wrong here? Shouldn’t we at least eliminate all tax exemptions for all religions? Since most students hate subjects like physics and mathematics, why not provide some tax breaks to encourage study in these powerful subjects for a change?

    • From ADVT: The Galileo phenomenon is the best example for the consequences of abusing of religions. Terrorism abuses religions for its goals, and it is our duty to illuminate about this vice force by peace brokering not war mongering.
