Religion: A Catalyst for Murder
Recently I was surfing the web looking for stories for my radio show. I came across a short story… a headline really. It read: “CAUTION — This is an adult web site but this is a video of a young Muslim kid cutting off his first HEAD and it shows it all.” I followed the supplied link (crudely encrypted for obvious reasons) and found the site. I clicked on the play button and watched a scene shot somewhere in the middle east. A young boy, probably no older than 10-12 years of age was holding a knife, the camera holding a fairly tight closeup of him. The boy is saying something illegible, obviously in another language other than english. Then the camera zooms out to show that the boy is standing over the right shoulder of a bound man lying on his left side and being held down by other men. The bound individual has a blindfold tied tightly over his eyes. There are spectators, only voices though. They sound like they are encouraging the boy to do something. The boy kneels next to the bound man as one of his captors pulls his head backward, exposing his neck. The boy places the blade of the large knife against the throat of his hapless victim and begins sawing through his throat and neck while others cheer him on. As the blade continues its journey through the victim’s neck, the adult captor holding his head is prying it back, making it easier for the blade to saw through…
I had to stop. I couldn’t watch any more of this despicable, inhuman, religiously driven murder. As I write this, the vision of what I did see is tormenting me… I have seen a lot of horrifying things in my life, but this is, by far, the worst.
I no more care for islam than I do christianity. But, while these two religions argue amongst one another as to who’s skydaddy is the right one, neither of them can lay claim to sanity or living in reality. Neither can they gloss over the barbarity of their religions, past, present, or future. I have said this before, and I will say it again, and again, and again, and again… religious FAITH is the most dangerous man-made weapon on this planet. FAITH brought down the Twin Towers, FAITH kills abortion doctors, FAITH demands compliance in the absence of evidence, reason, logic, and science. And, more than anything else, FAITH doesn’t like to be questioned. Blind obedience. Period.
I have to ask… How much FAITH is required to commit murder? How much FAITH should children be infused with before they have shown they are worthy of a god? How much FAITH is enough to kill for a delusion? ANSWER: Just enough for a person to overcome what little reason and humanity they may have left. And, before the christians go off on a tangent over the “love” of jesus… The history of christianity is just as fuckin’ bloody and violent as the islam of today. And, there are christians right now, who are doing everything they can to strengthen their FAITH just enough to prove how worthy they are of god’s kingdom. Just ask those who’ve killed for their christian skydaddy!
Religion is a catalyst for murder. IF you don’t believe me, then follow this link and follow the video link from there. But, I WARN YOU!!!! You will never be the same, especially when you realize that FAITH IS THE REASON for it, and RELIGION IS A CATALYST FOR MURDER!
