In July 2007 there was a terrorist attack on Glasgow Airport.  Those who drove a burning vehicle into the departure lounge did so “in the name of God”.

That same day, we were in Glasgow listening to Rob Bell deliver a talk entitled “Blessed Are The Peacemakers”.

What does that really look like right here, right now?

    Well according to our local hero it involves a Glasgow Kiss and a kick-in.

    Well that is pretty emotive.

    I am not a a big Frankie Boyle fan, find him quite offensive normally, but he tells a joke about the stupidity of the attack on Glasgow, terrorists trying to bring religious war to Glasgow? We (Glasgow) have been at war for so long we have football teams.

    The joke, as with all good jokes, contains truth. There is a lot, too much, fighting done in the name of God. It just makes me sad that would should be a great unifier splits so many people. I think that is where we are right now. Split.
