Joshua fit the battle of Jericho

“A religion, which makes humans dark, is wrong…” once wrote the philosopher Immanuel KANT (1724-1804). It seems that some modern activists still haven’t learned this basic lesson.

P.S.: I enjoyed some decades to play this famous negro spiritual on my guitar. But actually, watching the never ending crisis in Gaza I stumbled upon the message of the lyrics…
On YouTube a Julie Watson commented 3 years ago a fascinating guitarist (Wesley Crider) playing this song:
“Why is it O.K. to sing about a story where god gave the OK to pummel an entire city and kill everyone, including innocent women, children and animals?
“21 And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, both young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword.”
