Terrorists are people who terrorize others and justify it by their beliefs. These beliefs can be religious, political, or societal. Beliefs turn ordinary people into terrorists.
There are many terrorist groups around the world currently terrorizing other people because they follow a different religion. Even if they follow the same religion they want those people to conform to their idea of that religion and if they don’t they will be killed. There are groups of the terrorists who torture and kill others because of political ideology.
The minority, the terrorist group, wants to change the government. They do so by creating large scale attacks with car bombs and other bombings and killings and burning of villages and the slaughtering of people. They believe that by doing this the government will give in and they will be able to set up a new government.
Recently in the news the Kentucky clerk who refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples because of her religious beliefs has dominated the news. She is now in jail for defying the judge’s ruling that she must issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. She claims that god tells her she cannot do this. It’s against her right to practice freedom of religion. So she uses god and her religious beliefs to terrorize others. She does not make the laws in her job position; she is just required to follow the laws, which she agreed to do when she was appointed to her position. However, she justifies by her religious beliefs, that she can make new laws that others will have to follow. She feels powerful because she lives in an area where many others feel just like her, including her small army of lawyers.
We would say that anyone, especially someone who deals with the public in an elected position capacity, should always be sure that their words to others are kind, honest, helpful and above all non-judgmental. This county clerk seems to think that she doesn’t have to be that way when dealing with the public. Everyone, including people who claim to be religious, should follow these simple rules. Be kind, be honest, be helpful and do not judge.

COMMENTARY: There is no good excuse for disrespecting another human being or any living entity on this planet. Judgment is especially contradictory and always one-sided. Religion, politics, and society tends to have very narrow ways of dealing with things. Even when they are open-minded and lean into the non-judgmental approach to handling things, many in their sector protest, defending the old guard. There is a grand shift going on that’s shaking up the old guard on every front.
