The Irony of Religion and Hate

by Christine O'Reilly 4 years ago in social commentary

A Palindrome

Hate begets violence

as victims become perpetrators;

Ignorance fuels anger

while death causes intolerance;

Religion and blasphemy

predict opinions diverse;

Heaven and Paradise

enjoin symmetrical graves


Graves symmetrical enjoin

Paradise and Heaven;

Diverse opinions predict

blasphemy and religion;

Intolerance causes death while

anger fuels ignorance;

Perpetrators become victims as

violence begets hate
