The Spoils of Religion

Anita Bora of JustLikeThat, points to fellow Indian blogger, Jivha, in reaction to the horrible bombings in their home country:

"Whatever the report says, whatever the group that engineered the blasts, whatever the political parties say - I’m clear about one thing.

Each and every person killed in the blasts today was killed by religion.

I think we should consider becoming atheists if things are coming to this in India. I don’t see much use for a religion at the cost of thousands of innocent lives every year."

We do a lot of complaining about the rise of religious zealotry in the US of A and how it’s ruining our political life, but we still have a long way to go to match the hell that the zealots have unleashed in the name of God in so many unfortunate places on the globe.
