It's better than a blue light special! During the 30 days of Ramadan, a muslim who kills infidels get "ten times the normal blessing."
"No shit? You mean I get 170 virgins instead of just 17? Sign me up!"
"Yes, let me explain this to you, my brother:
'As we are told by Allah, the gates of Heaven are thrown open, the gates of Hell are closed and the devils are chained. This essentially signifies that, in Ramadan, the devils and their advocates have a much more difficult job diverting true Muslims from fully reaping the bounties of Allah by performing every religious duty with a pure intention.'"
No one explains what the unidentified virgins get out of this, accept to be sexually assaulted by some crazy who's just killed innocent people at a church, school or night club.
But, it's all in god's hands, they say.
The standard for slaughtering those with a different belief system was well-established in the first 39 books of the Holy Bible. Jews were told to enter into the territory of Amalekites, Hittites and Amorites and "destroy them, killing men, women and little children." Yes, Yahweh or Jehovah, the god of genocide.
These very scriptures were the ones taught, memorized and studied by Jesus Christ and his apostles. It is little wonder that the early Christians, particularly advocates of the Catholic Church, were just as bloodthirsty and genocidal as the Jews.
The Spanish Inquisition, perpetrated by the Catholic Church, where Muslims and Jews were slaughtered, burned at the stake and/or decapitated by the thousands for being infidels, far exceeds any of the atrocities of Isis.
Religious ignorance continues. These days groups of brainwashed Jehovah's Witnesses saunter down the residential streets of Brownsville, handing out religious literature that, carefully examined, explains that, very soon, their god will exterminate everyone on Earth, not a Jehovah's Witness, at the battle of Armageddon. Witness women, especially those walking through streets of Rio Viejo or Rancho Viejo, jot down house numbers of houses they would like to own after God's great war and the extermination of the current residents.

Religion has fostered a lot of evil shit in this world.
