A Sisterhood of Faith

Sisterhood of Faith

The idea these ladies had of getting together to discuss their respective faiths is a good one, and more of us should do it.
One thing that struck me, though, was that neither Priscilla or Suzanne appeared to challenge Rayna on the idea that suicide bombers are no different from martyrs who die during persecution or buddhists who self-immolate to make their point. Suicide bombers don't just kill themselves, they kill other innocent people. They may convince themselves that these others are not innocents, but to the rest of us they are. And even if they are not innocent, what right does a suicide bomber have to be judge, jury and executioner? "Revenge is mine, says the Lord." Christian martyrs died willingly because of their beliefs, not as a way of taking a few unbelievers with them.
