I think the question is, are crazy people like this simply more prone to superstitious / religious belief? In my estimation, being an atheist in a mostly religious culture / society typically makes one seem more logical, and therefore less prone to such socio/psychopathic behavior.
You see, Mr. Gaytheist, there are three "half-seconds" per day in which no one on the planet is murdered. Thanks to Her Royal Craziness, there will now be 4 of them.
This adds up to about two seconds of peace per day. Meaning that it will only take 216,000,000 years before the 10,000 years of peace has occurred. After that, life will go back to normal and people will be killed every half-second of every day, all year long forever.
I don't know how it is in America but down here in Australia at gun ranges your gun is locked into a bracket that prevents you from turning it around into the shooters area...
Not so in Amuricuh! That would be an infringment upon the gun lover's constitutional right to have to have the freedom of an un-bracket locked gun that allows them to turn around into the shooters area. It's all about freedom. You fascist pigs don't get that.
"Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you'd have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion." ~ Steven Weinberg, Nobel Laureate in physics
Yeah, I really agree with you. It's just more fun to pick on the fundies, since their sort of affected in the head anynow. But you are right, religion did not cause her problems, but I think they probably exacerbated them, perhaps. I also think you are right about the fact that we will see more violence now that things are going so bad.
