As Dennis Prager releases yet another screed claiming that if there is no God, anything goes (see his latest video below, titled “If There Is No God, Murder Isn’t Wrong”)—yet another jihadist commits mass murder in the name of “God.”
Of course, the irony of this pairing will be lost on Prager and company. But there you have it.
The fact is: If faith is a means of knowledge, anything goes. But acknowledging this relatively obvious fact entails disobeying one’s parents, preachers, and Sunday school teachers. And conservatives such as Prager refuse to do that. So they persist in claiming that if there is no invisible dictator in the sky who commands you not to murder, then murder is just fine.
What about when “God” commands people to murder—as he does in the scriptures of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam? “Never mind that,” we’re told; “God is love.” . . .
