Man sacrifices his son

The suspect claimed God has spoken to him before he picked a machete, held a short prayer and slaughtered the boy like a chicken and sprinkled the blood round his house. “God spoke to me and asked me to give him something that I love most and because I love my son I decided to offer him as a sacrifice,” the man told the police.

Sorry, what was that? You say this was just a poor lunatic? That it’s unfair to blame religion for mindlessly following a voice in your head to commit such insane acts? Alright, let’s check what the founders of religious doctrine really say about turning off your brain to follow faith and scripture without ever questioning it:

“Reason must be deluded, blinded, and destroyed. Faith must trample underfoot all reason, sense, and understanding, and whatever it sees must be put out of sight and … know nothing but the word of God.”

“But since the devil’s bride, Reason, that pretty whore, comes in and thinks she’s wise, and what she says, what she thinks, is from the Holy Spirit, who can help us, then? Not judges, not doctors, no king or emperor, because [reason] is the Devil’s greatest whore.”

Quotes from Martin Luther, founder of Christian protestantism, arguably the most tolerant main branch of Christianity.

Religion poisons your fucking mind.

  1. While I’m in favor of making religion look bad as often as possible, I’ve got to believe that anyone today who would kill their kids because of a voice in their head is probably certifiably insane.

    In this instance, it happened to be a religious person who heard god. But if someone really is crazy, then they’d probably listen to any voice in their head. An atheist might hear the government or aliens or something.

    Of course, it could be that God, in his infinite love and wisdom, really did communicate with this person. 😉

    Yep, this guy was clearly insane. But religion is the only view of the world that tells you “Yes, listen to voices in your head. Don’t think for yourself.”

    As the quotes above from Martin Luther demonstrate, religious people are taught to actively reject and abstain from reason and logic. These teachings are what tells them that it’s a good thing to fly planes into buildings, to kill heathens.
