Religious Dementia

More evidence of dementia in the name of religion, continually providing good reason for wanting to "eliminate our beliefs," as this statement claims "Western infidels" wish to do. One partial solution, it would seem, would be to make sure these hordes of young men are gainfully occupied. Before a nation is "liberated," would it not be a good idea to have an economic plan in place so that the occupants are not wallowing in destitution with little to do? Happy and fulfilled people generally do not behave in this manner; they cannot be lured by the promise of "heaven" in exchange for killing themselves. There is such a profound derangement being displayed here that any true solution - such as a complete psychological and sociological upheaval - may take centuries to accomplish. Another problem is the engrained cruelty and systematic abuse of children, which has the effect of creating hardened and dysfunctional adults with little reason to live. This particular issue does not get enough attention.


Purported Taliban Statement Issues Warning

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan - A statement attributed to Taliban leader Mullah Omar said Thursday that large numbers of Afghans were signing up as suicide bombers and that an offensive in the coming months would cause many casualties among foreign and Afghan troops....

"Young Afghans are coming to mujahedeen camps in large numbers to enroll their names for suicide attacks," the statement said.

"This year, with the beginning of summer, Afghan soil will turn red for the crusaders and their puppets, and the occupiers will face an unpredictable wave of Afghan resistance."...

Thursday's statement predicted that 2006 will be "the year of success and victory for Muslims."

"Those who have attacked the holy soil of Islam and their puppets will face shameful defeat because Muslims now understand that Western infidels want to eliminate our beliefs, soil and culture and make us their puppets," the statement said.

If anyone thinks this is dementia, I suggest they read the following:
Here is part of the Jesuit oath:

I do further promise and declare, that I will have no opinion or will of my own, or any mental reservation whatever, even as a corpse or cadaver, but will unhesitatingly obey each and every command that I may receive from my superiors in the Militia of the Pope. .... I furthermore promise and declare that I will, when opportunity presents, make and wage relentless war, secretly or openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Liberals, as I am directed to do, to extirpate and exterminate them from the face of the whole earth, and that I will spare neither age, sex or condition; and that i will hang, burn, waste, boil, flay, strangle and bury alive these infamous heretics, rip up the stomachs and the wombs of their women and crush their infants heads against the walls, in order to annihilate forever their execrable race. That when the same cannot be done openly, I will secretly use the poisoned cup, the strangulating cord, the steel of the poniard or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honor, rank, dignity, or authority of the person or persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agent of the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Faith, of the Society of Jesus. - Edwin A Sherman, The Engineer Corps of Hell; or Rome's Sappers and Miners, Private subscription, 1883, pp. 118-124.

If this doesn't horrify the Roman Catholics and make them as sick to the stomach as it would make the rest of us, then nothing will.
