The disgusting disease of religion

The disease of religion

Jawad Zeiniddine, a one-year-old Lebanese Shiite Muslim boy wearing a headband with the name of Prophet Mohammed’s grandson Imam Hussein, joins adults in a self-flagellation ritual during which they cut their scalps with blades to mark the religious mourning event of Ashura in the southern Lebanese town of Nabatiyeh.

We can safely assume that the tears running down the face of this one year old child are tears of fear and pain and not tears of mourning for some long dead relation of Mohammed.

This is the kind of thing that creates a soceity where the rape of children by priests is acceptable.

    Ireland is now being flooded with different versions of the ‘disgusting disease’.
    The resignation of Catholic Bishops is not going to cure a problem which was created by the gullibility of the ‘faithful’.
    For at least 20 years the faithful knew what was going on and for 20 years their continued support has been responsible for the continuation of child sex abuse.
    No organization can continue in existence without support.
