Reasons to eliminate religion.
Sorry, but I have to vent for a minute, OK; for hundreds of years indigenous people and their culture have seen extreme brutality from Muslim and Allah, Jews/Christians and God/Jesus. In fact, for those of us who have read-up on history knows that the justifications for enslaving and brutalizing these people was that "they were not Christians or "saved" and we, the good God/Jesus loving colonialists, must convert these pagans to Christ."
Also, who, except Christians themselves, can forget the Salem witch hunts and trials in the United States between February 1692 and May 1693 where over 150 people were arrested and imprisoned. In fact, 19 of the accused, fourteen women and five men, were hanged.
Why do I bring this ugly, past history of Christianity up? The answer is quite fucking simple, these evil actions committed by people in their blind faiths isn't over. For instance, "A woman in rural Papua New Guinea was bound and gagged, tied to a log and set ablaze on a pile of tires this week, possibly because villagers suspected her of being a witch, police said Thursday."
Not only that, "Her death adds to a growing list of men and women who have been accused of sorcery and then tortured or killed in the South Pacific island nation,"
and many place in Africa where innocent children are been accused of the same, and eventually banish from their home or even killed by their Jesus loving parents.
"Early Tuesday morning, a group of people dragged the woman, believed to be in her late teens to early 20s, to a dumping ground outside the city of Mount Hagen. They stripped her naked, bound her hands and legs, stuffed a cloth in her mouth, tied her to a log and set her on fire,"
The report said.
In addition, the report claimed that "In a well-publicized case last year, a pregnant woman gave birth to a baby girl while struggling to free herself from a tree. Villagers had dragged the woman from her house and hung her from the tree, accusing her of sorcery after her neighbor suddenly died."
These evil monstrous actions are, without a doubt, done by people who suddenly "Find Jesus," and that's why we can not afford to stay silent or forget the past history of religion. I have many of my Christian "friends" said to me that "all these evil things done by Christianity were in the past." Oh, really, Just read the news, Jesus freaks.
These evils of religion are not just something of the past, but continues to plague us to this very day. Indeed, these evils were perpetrated after accepting the religious dogmas and these dogmas remain the foundation of these religions, and continues to affect the behavior of individual today.
