Religion is a mental disease and right now you have billions of people with mental illness believing in that book that has only caused death and violence where ever it has been allowed to be read.
The rest of literature I could less about, but the Bible is a book that creates wars, tortures, terrorism and hatred.
It's about time humanity wakes up and see that evil work for what it is, the evil root cause of wars and strife and terrorism all over the world.
The Torah, The Bible, The New Testament and Qur'an all need to be abolished as EVIL books that created nothing but death and violence.
So those four books SHOULD BE BANNED and anyone that wants to say they are true should be locked away as a mentally ill person.
Your opinion is cute
. In a naive sort of way. People kill people for anything & everything.
Does a killer bow five times a day to Mecca? Does a serial rapist / murderer chant verses? Does a mother shaking her infant pray to god?
People killed during any of the French Revolution in the past - where the commoners bouncing up and down screaming Jesus, said you must be beheaded for you are monarchy?
Was one side of the Civil War praying to God and the other side to Allah?
Religion is the cause of all strife. So, let me ask you, a homeless guy - is he on the street because he is religious or because he has no faith. How about women in abusive relationships - faithful or faithless.
Nearly ten million children are sexually abused, by their biological parents, in the US alone as per 2010 - 2011? stats. Now are you going to blame religion for that too?
A large number of the guerilla warfare in Africa, and I am not talking those recent idiots calling themselves "Muslim" who wouldn't qualify as a real Muslim if the world opened up and swallowed every real Muslim whole, has been going on for YEARS. DECADES even in some areas.
If you blamed religion for such warfare, the people fighting would ask if you just smoked some whacky tobacky. Religion has never played a part in that version of guerilla warfare - yet they recruit thousands upon thousands upon thousands of children soldiers every year to fight either against corrupt country leaders or fellow gang rivals.
Slavery - thousands of people were killed. Black slaves and white serfs. Are you going to blame religion - how can you for if you looked some of the African tribes were paid by white traders to round up lesser tribes as slaves. The Zulu were well known for this little "quirk" - and talking about the Zulu how about the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879 [don't think religion played any part] nor the Boer wars.
Was Hilter dressed in a tutu singing praise to Moses on his off time by chance? Stalin to Allah or maybe Jesus, or maybe he alternated his days of prayer.
The KKK was never religious [oh some fools claim they were, but that is a blatant lie]. Do you know was Al Capone killing in the name of Moses, Jesus or Muhammad?
Luis Garavito, better known as La Bestia, killed 138 children - some say he murdered 300. Nothing religious, he was just a sexual abuse victim doing as many sexual abuse victims do - sexually abusing others, he just went a bit far. Ted Bundy - did he read the good old Book before murdering his victims by chance?
You are blaming religion - yet you obviously know barely nothing about the mid east.
East Indians, Sikhs and Hindus mostly who are 'good' gentle people to the average mind of the ill-educated. I have a friend who is the security manager at a major hotel. Just yesterday they nearly had a riot in the hotel lobby - not because of religion but because of different cultural and societal sects happened to run into one another. The month before they had 20 East Indians started fighting from the main doors of the lobby straight through to the back valet parking area. Religion had not a single thing to do with it - two different societal classes resolving "issues".
That's two incidents, if you bothered looking there is many more.
Naive people have a bad habit of clumping people of particular religions under one wide umbrella. Sure you might be capable of doing that with westernized religion - there are so many cultural, societal, and familial sects in mid-eastern culture that even if religion didn't exist ... they'd still
They've been fighting for generations already - the al qaeda were encountered by the British in the early 1800s.
So if we're banning "evil" books - want to make it simple and just drop a few dozen dirty bombs over the entire mid-eastern area? Actually let's make it really simple and just start WWIII seeing as I don't believe the shooting incident in Ireland [two rival gangs] had anything to do with religion or maybe the recent school shootings the culprits really were screaming verses as they hand picked their victims.
Whoever survives the nuclear fallout is the victor.
As it is, there are 110+ legit religions in this world. Some of the books or the versions of to Hinduism, Sikhism, Buddhism, and Taoism for example are violent. They encourage such behavior.
Are you going to ban those too?
How about books dedicated to fake religions and the worship of false "gods". The "religion" of scientology is one of the biggest, moralless scams imaginable. Did you know that people remortgage their houses time & time again to pay the fees to join with scientology quacks. Should not such religion & any related text be burnt at the foot of Everest.
You say people whom believe in such should be locked in a mental hospital - then what do you do with the people who don't believe & yet murder, rape, and cause all sorts of terror. Do they run around naked with signs around their heads - keep away, faithless nutjob.
I mean was Hannibal Lecter chewing on his victims while talking to the Pope about the errors of Isaiah 57:1-2? How about the guy in Canada, Pickton, was he feeding verses from the Q'uran and people parts to his pigs?
I am hardly religious - but the naivety of blaming religion is half the problem why such things happen. People would rather remain ignorant and blame the easiest at-fault scapegoat aka religion while they learn nothing.
