Biblical advice -- not what you'd expect

The scene, as described in Judges 6:

Villagers are enraged at a mortal's insult of their god and seek to bloodily avenge the slight.

One man, Joash speaks up:

"Will ye plead for Baal [the god]? Will ye save him? If he be a god, let him plead for himself."

If humanity had applied to this to all religions and all permutations of deity, consider the difference that would have been made in the world.
