The suspect in the shooting (“attempted execution”) of a Philadelphia police officer declared that he shot the officer in Islam’s name. (From the Police Commissioner: “According to him, police bend laws that are contrary to the teachings of the Quran.”) Somehow, the mayor of Philadelphia seems to disagree with the shooter. Sorta like how Obama doesn’t think muhammedans shrieking their hatred and vengeance upon the infidel as they murder Christians by the thousands has anything to do with muhammedanism.
Be that as it may, the man used a stolen police gun, something the new Obama executive action surely would have prevented. The police need to be armed, of course, so the real criminal here is obviously religion. It is high time we recognize that religion kills more people than anything else. And in order to keep our children safe, we need to have some serious curbs on just anyone having religion. Schools should be God-free zones. We need to stop the “extremists” who have hijacked the First Amendment to claim an individual right to faith.
Do you believe in God? Then you are an extremist. You should be listed in a federal database as a believer in God. The place you attend church services should be legally liable for anyone of that faith who kills or harms another person. That way, when people are no longer allowed to have religion and we are all thankfully safe, armed Federal authorities can come to your house and confiscate bibles, crucifixes, prayer books, rosary beads, and other religious paraphernalia that are dangers to themselves, their household, and their neighbors.
Such a plan, of course, is not unprecedented. Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, replying to a questioner in Keene, NH who asked “[Regarding] churches…the Soviet Union managed to take away tens of thousands–even millions–of churches and houses of worship, and in one year they were all gone. Can we do that? And if we can’t, why can’t we?”
“I don’t know enough details to tell you how we would do it or how it would work, but certainly the Soviet example is worth looking at,” Clinton said at a New Hampshire town hall on Friday.
Common-sense religious laws. Religion is responsible for more violence than any other single thing. This outmoded idea that everyone has the right to have God in their lives, God telling them what to do instead of the dictates of the State, “makes no sense”, in the words of President Obama. Maybe, if we can eliminate such dangerous religion in the hands of private citizens, we can avoid the tragedies like San Bernadino, Fort Hood, Umpqua, UC Merced, Paris, and elsewhere. Let’s do it, for the children, so they can be safe from God and religious violence. Like the ones in Kampuchea.
