Well I wanted to look for myself, a normal person reading the two great books that seem to divide the world more than the followers of their respective texts would want. Each book speaks of charity and sacrifice. They speak of patience and conversion. They speak of exclusivity and racism as well. But these passages seem outside of the "good" moral intent for which each book was written. Words of division are so interesting in these holy books, words to separate those who are inside and outside, typical religious language designed by the authors. Perhaps they are from God or alternately they could be the authors personal agenda bleeding in to an otherwise "holy" text. I hope earnestly for the latter, for the former would indicate that our creator has some sort of evolving morality that could prove troublesome for us some time in the future when God decides to be rid of us.
