More Christians burnt to death by Muslims 3

A report by Naijaurban (Nigeria):

Security agents said they discovered the bodies of at least 50 people, mostly women and children, who were burnt to death in the house of a pastor of the Church of Christ in Nigeria in Matse village.

Family members of the victims said the people burnt at the pastor’s home were people who ran into the home for safety after fulani herdsmen invaded their village on Saturday morning, killing over 20 people.

“Fulani herdsmen” is a phrase reporters in Nigeria like to use to refer to Muslim murderers. But Muslim murderers they are. They kill Christians not because they are herdsmen but because they are Muslims.

The killers followed these people to the church house, set the house ablaze and prevented people from leaving by standing at the exit and shooting at people who came out through the door.

    This is another good example of how religion encourages and provides people with an excuse for violence.  If they had still been following some native superstitions they may have done the same thing, or maybe not. Even as Christians it could have happened, if they considered the others to be “heretics”.  But with the example of Mohammed to guide them, it was pretty much guaranteed.
    If they were atheists, it would be pretty likely that it would never have happened, because that would mean they had finally learned what brains were for and how to use them.

      Just because someone is an atheist doesn’t mean they know how to use their brain, or are even intelligent.  There are plenty of liberal atheists after all.

        Yes, that’s true.  You can be an atheist by default, rather than by actually studying the issues and making a rational choice to be one. Liberal atheists are the prime example of that. 
        Although it can be argued that Leftism is basically a “religion”, who’s god is Government, or the Collective, or Gaia, or fill in the blank. Neither liberalism or religion encourage independent thinking, and at their worst both become totalitarian.
