Oh please. I never said it is only CHRISTIANS who commit acts of violence "in the name of god". People of ALL religions are guilty of this.<quoted text>
I don't see much difference in "for God" or "in the name of God".
Anyway, you didn't answer. What Christians commit acts of violence "in the name of God"?
And the difference is that "in the name of god" one is committing the act of violence under the assumption that their god is okay with it.
Saying "for god" would mean that god is commanding one to commit acts of violence.
And it IS criminal for parents to withhold medical treatment from their children because they believe it goes against their god's will and wishes. And it is also a form of violence in that it IS abuse and even if it is a PASSIVE form of violence.
And gee- you've NEVER heard of parents attempting to beat the "devil" out of their children by LITERALLY beating them and beating them very badly and because that is what their god WANTS them to do?
Just TWO of many examples, RR.....come ON.
