Mel Gibson compared the war in Iraq to the human sacrifice by Mayans in his new movie. Well, if you want to talk about human sacrifice in the name of religiosity, look no farther than the suicide bombers sent to murder by their elders.
I don’t know what Mel Gibson says. But the soldiers who murder Iraqi and Lebanese citizens are sent/financed by a US Government that is bankrolled by Fundamentalist Christians and friends of Israel. The same kind of religious nut jobs oppose condoms and so condemn millions to death from AIDS.
Lots of people are giving up their lives due to religion. Many don’t have any choice in the matter.
Your point is that two wrongs make a right?
Because terrorists are bad, it’s OK to drop a bomb on the house of a suspected terrorist and kill everyone inside?
Number of suicide bombings in Iraq prior to the 2003 invasion: ZERO
Number of murders committed by Saddam after US liberation: ZERO
