    One of many reasons I have more of a problem with religions like Christianity than I do with a personal spiritual discipline like Buhddism.

    It all comes back to the question of evil.

    If God is willing to rid the world of evil, but unable, then he cannot be omnipotent.
    If God is able to rid the world of evil, but unwilling, then he is cruel.
    If God is both willing and able, from whence comes evil?
    If he is neither willing, nor able, then why call him God?

    The simple logic is inescapable. It's actually so simple that the thought isn't mine - it came from Epicurus, in the second century BCE.

    I am for wiping out Isis, why would I want to harm others for what they do?

    Its more like your parents telling you not to touch a hot stove. If you choose to touch the hot stove expect to get burned, but don't blame your parents for not stopping you from touching the hot stove.

    Man has a choice between Good and Evil. Man has free will to choose, but expect the consequences of those choices

    Good, then you can't compare wiping out group of extreme ideology with that of commanding the genocide of an entire race. I'm glad we agree that genocide is not an appropriate response to violence, or acts of war. So, do everyone a favour, and don't make that absurd analogy again. Just accept the fact that you worship a God that commended genocide.

    No it's not. That would only be an accurate analogy if, after touching the hot stove, your parents burned you, your sister, and your dog alive for disobeying them. You keep trying to make these absurd analogies that are in no way similar to what your God allegedly did.
