More Killed In Name of Religion?!


More Killed In Name of Religion?!

I have heard this statement flippantly and confidently quipped by many. Much as if it is a self-evident Truth. I have heard this said, in all seriousness, by those who consider themselves to be religious people.

I generally dispute these statements. My first concern is where is the evidence of this and who did the math to prove that slanderous assertion. The answer is normally a passing reference to the Crusades or the Inquisitions. The debate then fades to what is essentially a matter of incalculable clashing, but incalculable opinions.

I want to thank Gonzo for sending me the following article. It provides some interesting (though I am sure, debatable) logic and  statistics with which to arm one’s self when debating the “More Killed By Religion” slander.

Whether you are religious or not, it is your responsibility to evaluate this issue carefully before you enter the debate.

Given the protracted secular humanist war on religion in Europe and America, and the continuing decline of these civilizations, I think the whole of Western Culture is at stake.

Evaluate the following and then have the courage to speak-up!

    Lets dispel another myth shall we?
    Ever heard the one about Christians divorcing at a higher rate?
    Turns out, that is untrue too.
