Chapter One: Provocative Thoughts While Touring a Park: from When God Became the Terrorist
14 Apr 2010

Chapter Two: Abrahamic Models Of Governance from When God Became the Terrorist
14 Apr 2010

14 Apr 2010

Chapter Five: Man’s Influence On Religion: from When God Became the Terrorist
14 Apr 2010
Religions are not all the same. Each one has it’s own individuality and psyche-ology (or allows for multiple interpretations). Also many leading figures, even within one religion’s lore, have their own individuality that can cause ideological and values clash within.

Chapter Six: The Legality of Justice Versus Blind Faith from When god Became the Terrorist
14 Apr 2010
Are political guarantees just so man words on paper to be used for political speeches? Who is ultimately responsible for enforcing principles of law in a republic? Given the reality that justice is very much a human concept, what can people presume, if anything, about such abstract words as “justice” and “fairness: before the law? What informs these legal meanings that people too often take for granted? Dedicated to the prisoners at Guantanamo who are or were innocent and to their lawyers who are attempting to bring justice to bear.
