    So the misguided Jews and Muslims should "convert to Christianity and practice Love..." A tear is trickling down my cheek as a sardonic chuckle shoots from my throat. Alas, in all its history, Christianity has been from the very beginning marked by strife and bloodshed, not only against the pagans but against its own followers. Not content with exterminating Jews, Muslims, natives of the Americas, Africa, Australia, Asia, the various adherents most zealously burnt, hanged, drew and quartered, drowned, carved to bits members of other forms of Christianity. Aryans, Catthars, Monophysites were soon wiped out. Then Catholics slew Protestants and Protestants slew Catholics. In 1204, during the 4th Crusade, the Roman Catholic "Frankish" knights gleefully plundered Constantinople, butchering the inhabitants without qualm simple because they did not cross themselves from left to right. I commend your brotherly intentions, but no religion can hang out a sign: "Everything OK here."

This Valentine's day, celebrate not love, but the sublime bond of friendship

Friendship is free of the indignities, suffering and drama that characterize romantic love; it doesn't have an expiration date; we rarely suspect it to be a figment of our imagination. But love is what fuels our economy.
