- Faith is not a weapon! - Hmmm...

“There is no belief worth killing for. There is no belief worth dying for”, Krishnamurti, 1938.

I found information about a movement whose motto is its title:

"Earthlings Against Mercenary Suicide"

Their arguement is that in the Middle East, even those who blow themselves up without compensation are advancing the causes of their religious prelates when the prelate promises them heaven. This might even equate to a compensation for advertising. Those who blow themselves up because they are desparate for the $25,000 offered, are argued to be missing the point of heaven in the first place.

The "Earthlings" title caught my attention. Are they trying to be ecumenical, or just non-denominational?
