  •  Have you not read the Bible? (7+ / 0-)

    The Old Testament is a manual on when and where to stone people to death, especially troublesome children.

    Christians, Jews, pagans, animists, etc can provide you with sickening tomes of atrocities throughout the millenia. Not all made it to Fox news.

    Then of course, men are prone to torturing and killing fellow human beings for no religious reason at all. Politics, nationalility, gang affiliation, tribe,  someone dissed them, someone looked at them funny....

    •  Not only that (1+ / 0-)

      Beating one's enemies brains out against rocks, and killing every last man, woman, child, and head of livestock of one's enemies (and being punished by God if one doesn't do it).  And there are passages in the New Testament that can be (and have been) taken out of context to justify brutal violence (such as Matthew 10:34:  "I have come not to bring peace, but to bring a sword").

      Still PROUD to be a Democrat!
