Bruno's Bulletin is named after the heroic freethinker Filippo Giordano Bruno who was burned alive by the Catholic Church on February 17, 1600 for refusing to play along with their dogmatic ignorance of Nature and reality. He is an example to all Deists and freethinkers of courage and integrity in the face of Christian ignorance and brutality and is a reminder of what happens when the "revealed" religions go unchecked.

Deism Can Defuse Religious Hatred and Prevent A Future 9/11
by Bob Johnson
Today, September 11, 2009, is the eighth anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. There are memorial services all around the U.S. remembering those who died because of those deadly attacks.
What is also important is to recognize the cause of those attacks. We can start by looking at the Old Testament and the Koran to find the cause. We then need to look at U.S. foreign policy to see if it is playing into the violence spawning teachings/myths of the holy books of the "revealed" religions.
Looking at the Old Testament we see Deuteronomy 7:6 claiming that God chose the ancient Hebrews to be his chosen people "above all people that are upon the face of the earth."
This type of thinking on behalf of anyone, even Jews, that God favors you and yours above all other people on our planet, can only cause problems. The Old Testament/Hebrew Bible is loaded with claims that the Jews should rule the world and that other people and nations are here to serve them. For example, Isaiah 60:12 says regarding Israel, "For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted."
Any nation, especially a nation with nuclear weapons like the Jewish state of Israel, that has this mental outlook and worldview cannot help but to cause serious problems.
In the Koran we see a similar type of superiority on behalf of Muslims. Surah 2: 6-7 says, "As for the Disbelievers, Whether thou warn them or thou warn them not is all one for them; they believe not. Allah hath sealed their hearing and their hearts; and on their eyes there is a covering. Theirs will be an awful doom." In other words, non-Islamic people can't be helped and the Islamic god has actually made it impossible for them to have any hope.
When you have nations grounded in this type of thinking as we have in the Middle East, you are going to have terrorism, whether it's state terrorism using a F-16 to fire rockets into Islamic neighborhoods or it's a civilian Palestinian blowing himself/herself up in a crowded Jewish area. The ONLY way to remove the root of the problem is to make these people aware that God had NOTHING to do with writing either the Bible or the Koran and that if they want to get closer to God the only way to do that is to embrace their God-given reason. This is Deism.
When we realize the the politicians in Congress and the White House have been giving BILLIONS of U.S. tax dollars every year to Israel for powerful deadly weapons for the last 40 years or so you can begin to realize why the Islamic people would be upset with the U.S. Whenever Israel blows up a Palestinian neighborhood with American jets dropping American cluster bombs or firing American rockets, those people being attacked cannot have a positive outlook regarding America.
America's politicians and people need to take this advice from George Washington: "Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence (I conjure you to believe me, fellow-citizens) the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake; since history and experience prove, that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of Republican Government. But that jealousy, to be useful, must be impartial; else it becomes the instrument of the very influence to be avoided, instead of a defense against it. Excessive partiality for one foreign nation, and excessive dislike of another, cause those whom they actuate to see danger only on one side, and serve to veil and even second the arts of influence on the other. Real patriots, who may resist the intrigues of the favorite, are liable to become suspected and odious; while its tools and dupes usurp the applause and confidence of the people, to surrender their interests." Neglecting this warning from George Washington has brought about our Middle East foreign policy that puts Israel's interests before America's and which is a key reason for the 9/11 attacks.
Since all "revealed" religions start with Deism, the belief in God, all followers of the "revealed" religions have the ability to let go of the man-made revelations, etc. that cause the terrible violence and destruction and the fear and superstition in the lives of too many people. This is a very real possibility once Deism reaches enough people. What a beautiful world we will have then! As Thomas Paine said, "We have it in our power to begin the world over again."
