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.”
Religion poisons your fucking mind.
