    A fabulous sound if it's well-tuned though. Brilliant metaphor - religions should sound against each other in a harmonizing manner. (Report) Reply

    Fear... if you do not believe in my religion you are wrong and if you do not convert to my religion I am going
    to kill you. Only out of fear that your religion may be the right religion. (Report) Reply
