Nonsense.

You can deny it all you want. But people are JUST like that - they will, say, not act violently against people their religion tells them to kill but approve of such actions (gays, non-believers, etc...).

They also do not stand up against people with more extremist religious beliefs, say, for example, a person who believes in theistic evolution will not be mean or alienating to a young earth creationist.

Ergo, this happens.

How on earth did she think she'd exorcise her kids with a knife, without killing them?  :/

 

Religion allows a whole other level of stupidity.

They don't? I'm really confused at what you're trying to say. 


No it doesn't.

 

Yeah, you're right. Most religious people believe that the best way to raise their children is to murder them and claim it's an exorcism. This leads to strong healthy adults. Clearly.

What religion that approves of exorcism tells people to kill?  Lets stay relevant to the thread.

 

It seems like you are mashing religions together to find an answer.

So not as ridiculous as your sweeping and wrong generalizations make you look then? Fine with me.

Hey back off. If not for strawmen this whole forum would be dead. 

 

PS. To the rest of the thread. Stupid is stupid stop trying to giving a damn reason.

Religion. Getting in the way of human progress since the world was at the center of the universe.

 

So what is the excuse then for non religious people who do the same things? 

 

There are nut jobs out there no matter if there is any religion involved.  The religious just have the pleasure of being hypocrites as well.

For a second there I thought I was reading the plot of the next Constantine movie. How on earth did she think she'd exorcise her kids with a knife, without killing them?  :/

 

I was reminded more of The Binding of Isaac

I can't understand how people come to a point where they allow themselves to believe in this.

Unless the person trying to do the exorcism is mentally unstable? Yeah? 

 

The lady probably just had bratty kids and got tired of their **** all the while living a stress filled life. And one day she had enough and decided her kids were possessed by demons.

 

 

So is she mentally unstable or did she just decide one day her kids were possessed because they misbehaved  :s ?

 

 

 

 

 

This seems like a far more plausible scenario to me than she's just an extremist.

 

Because she practiced an exorcism? Then a large proportion of religious people are extremists because exorcism is a fairly common practice in a lot of denominations/religions. I think the Catholic Church just ramped up their exorcism business.
