High Coo – August 22 – Killing for Love?


Today is the International Day to Commemorate Victims of Religious-based Violence which was first celebrated by the United Nations General Assembly in 2019.

The holiday explanation (see: https://nationaltoday.com/international-day-commemorating-the-victims-of-acts-of-violence-based-on-religion-or-belief/) states “Religion offers moral codes and teachings that can guide people to better their lives and the lives of others. But there’s ample evidence showing it may achieve the opposite.”

Today’s haiku: Killing for Love?

If life is sacred,

is harming life sacred too?

Does love inspire hate?

I think it’s healthy to question whether our actions support our beliefs. I think it’s helpful to invite “fellow believers” to do the same. I’m interested in knowing what you think.
