Christopher Hitchens and the myth of religious violence – ABC Religion & Ethics – Opinion

The myth of religious violence is a way of saying, “Their violence is essentially irrational and fanatical. Our violence is essentially rational and necessary.”

A more peaceful world depends on doing away with such binaries, and taking a hard look both at Muslim-inspired violence and at the things – flags, markets, “freedom” – to which we sacrifice lives.
