Religion Taken Seriously

The fundamental argument for rejecting religion - of any denomination - is that its essence is the reliance on faith (with the concomitant repudiation of reason). These days we tend to think of fundamentalist Muslims and Christians as the only examples of what happens when religion is taken seriously. But there are other forms of religion, having equally terrible results, as shown by today's horrifying news from London:
'Child sacrifices in London'
Boys Trafficked for Human Sacrifices
Black Churches Attacked Over Child Ritual Killings
Hat Tip: Onk

Here's another stoory from today's news...

BUCHAREST, Romania - A Romanian Orthodox monk has been indicted in the death of a 23-year-old nun in an apparent exorcism in which she was allegedly bound to a cross, had a towel stuffed into her mouth and left without food for three days.

Four nuns also were indicted Sunday in connection with the death of Maricica Irina Cornici of the Holy Trinity convent in northeast Romania. The prosecutor said Monday authorities were awaiting the results of a second autopsy before deciding how to proceed.
