It is so very, very sad what religion is doing to innocent members of our societies:
It is sad, and also horrifying. Here, in the 21st century, in modern America, we as a society are subjected to the disgusting, violent, bigoted behaviors of Christians everywhere we go. To the point where many members of our society feel that suicide is the only way to gain relief. All of it is happening in the name of a “God of love”.
And Islam is worse. Read this article to see the insanity of religion amplified by rampant fundamentalism:
The Sunnis are backed by their religious head, Saudi Arabia lead by the Wahhabist conservative regime (Wahhabism is a particular orientation within Salafism). The Shiaas are influenced by their Shiaa-Iconic regime, the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Mullahs regime that launched “The Shiaa Revival” with its Iranian Revolution three decades ago. Iran is now accused of imposing its political and religious agenda on non-Iranian Shiaas, causing conflict in their own countries, and also influencing Sunnis as well. Throughout the Arabian Gulf countries, one phenomenon is found: Imams are loudly swearing to – both inside and outside their mosques – the fundamental basics of the Shiaa tradition. At the same time, many books have recently been released that are against the Shiaa tradition.Those books are freely available to the public. An analyst from the region told me in confidence that this phenomenon is a “Wahabist invasion of the Gulf countries”. The Sunnis have started to call the Shiaas as rawafid (Rejectionists and perhaps dissidents) The Shiaa have started to call the Sunni as Nawasib (Have intentional hostility against Imam Ali).These words are derogatory, stereotypical, and highly provocative.
The behavior makes us look imbecilic as a species, and leads the author to predict all-out war:
Without intervention, the clash of these three fundamentalists will lead to an all-out religious war, on par with the Christian Crusades centuries ago, but fought with today’s ever more deadly weapons.
All in the name of a “God of peace”.
An intelligent person can come to only one conclusion: Religion is insanity. That is the only word that can be used to describe it. Manny will argue that it is “only the extremists who do these things”, but what is happening with homophobia in America, and the sectarian strife in the Middle East, is not caused by extremists – these are mainline activities by the rank and file, fully and publicly encouraged by religious leaders.
If you are a Christian or a Muslim, please consider an alternative. Abandon these ridiculous religions, their disgusting leaders and their imaginary, ridiculous “gods”. Here are two sites that can help you overcome religious delusion:
