Hurley, Kameron: Rapture (The Bel Dame Apocrypha III) (2012)

Routine. Just another day breathing. (p. 2)

God’s War, huh. On Religious Tolerance you will find recent religious conflicts around the world. I counted 25. While most of those wars are across religious lines, some of them (Iraq, Pakistan and Somalia) are, like the 3000 year long World War on Umayma, about interpretations of a faith. As far as we can tell, … Continue reading Hurley, Kameron: God’s War (The Bel Dame Apocrypha I) (2011)
