More Islamic Insanity

Breathe deeply of the insanity, as reported by Reuters:

Leader slaughters goats to ward off evil?

Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari has a black goat slaughtered at his house almost every day to ward off “evil eyes” and protect him from “black magic,” a newspaper reported Wednesday.

A spokesman for the president told the Dawn newspaper the goats were slaughtered as an act of Sadaqah — meaning “voluntary charity” in Islam whereby one gives out money or the meat of a slaughtered animal to the poor to win Allah’s blessing and stave off misfortune.

“It has been an old practice of Mr Zardari to offer Sadaqah. He has been doing this for a long time,” the spokesman, Farhatullah Babar, told the paper.

Pakistan is a predominantly Muslim country where many of the well-off offer Sadaqah.

The logic: “If I kill this animal, I will win Allah’s blessing and stave off misfortune.” Makes perfect sense, if you are insane.

    Although I agree that religion in any sense is ridiculous, if he’s slaughtering the animals to help feed the poor, I have to say he’s at least doing something good. I’d rather someone do something good for humanity in the name of religion than have someone do something harmful in the name of religion.

    All you Atheists, say what ever you want but I want to ask you one thing that religion is not only what we believe, it is a law for people to not be animals. As if there is no god and those ancient traditions are only to restrict people to do something they want why atheist don’t get marriage with his mother, sister and daughter.

Sin is bad for human told by God. If no God there is no sin.

    Mr. Muslim -

    You say that there is no reason for atheists not to do horrible things because they don’t have a holy book to tell them it’s wrong.

    May I then assume that the only reason you don’t have sex with your own mother is because a holy book tells you not to? Is that the only thing keeping you from raping children, or eating babies? Really?

    Are you saying that you have no sense of common decency or how to treat others without a book to tell you how to behave?

    It sounds to me like you’re saying the fear of eternal punishment is the only thing keeping you from torturing small animals and burning down your neighbor’s house.

    Or is it possible that people generally like to get along with other people and behave in a manner which allows them to do so, with or without religion?

    No, but may we visit your planet? This website is not an attempt to get along, it is an attempt to label all religious folks delusional. To make things a little more confrontational it is opinion not fact.
    If everyone wants to get along and obey rules why do we deal with politicians, enemies and avarice every day?
