The 'it' refers (in very poor English, I now see) to the God who might not approve of our medicines. [Now I feel like TS Eliot 'I do not know much about gods' (monomania again)] Is that the same God who made us feel so special because he sent his own son whom we revere, and because we do and they do not, our rights over them are increased? [So, OK, I know and I think agree with your views on Replacement theology (if that is what it is).]

In particular with respect to whole slabs of land on which we both live, which brings us to the God of the Conquistadors and the God of the puritans, who is I guess, the God of Handel's 'Messiah'.

You recently had a president, Lou, whose reading (or something) was such that he referred to the invasion of Iraq and War on Terror as a 'crusade', before he was warned off by his advisers.

What's the price of a life in Iraq? $100,000 if you're lucky enough to get it, I read yesterday. American Exceptionalism and all the rest.

HG Wells was asked around the 30s what would have to happen to all those coloured peoples and he said something along the lines of "It sounds harsh, but they will have to go". People don't say that any more, having seen it it action. Like Darwin, he sees Tasmania happening...he didn't like it, but since he'd just come from Brazil with slavery and punishment, he accepted it as progress, I think it is fair to say.

Now that I reflect on it, I *can* think of a genocide done by a power without a Christian heritage....the Armenians.
