So, interesting that it was Muslims who did this. Why is no one surprised?

When is the world finally going to get over this insanity of having faith in some invisible sky daddy, and thinking your sky daddy is better then the next persons? If nothing else this incidence shows why religions are a bane to this planet. We are not going to be just be able to get along as long as this idiocy of fsiths continues.

The Italian cops should put the 15 muslim losers back on a boat, run a chum line a couple miles off the coast until the sharks are worked into a frenzy, then tell the losers that it's time for a little swim...

I can only speak for myself, but I was not surprised the Muslims threw the Christians overboard because that is the kind of thing that Muslims seem to do.

For example, Quran verse 2:191 says "slay them wherever ye find them". Unfortunately, some Muslims take this stuff seriously.

Fundamentalism is not healthy for children and other living things.

You're equating it with hysteria caused by religious faith.

I'm sorry but...

Hindus probably wouldn't do this.
Buddhists definitely wouldn't do this.
Fundamentalist Christians might do this.
Other Christians wouldn't do this.
Jews wouldn't do this.
Pagans wouldn't do this.
Neither would Sikhs, Jains, Zoroastrians, etc.

Communists would do this.
Nazis would do this.
Muslims would do this.

Ergo, Islam is not a religious group. It's a power group, a might makes right group. People with actual spiritual faith have moved past thuggery, people with superficial faith pull crap like this. Ever wonder why religious zealots tend to be the lowest common denominator? It's because the rest of us want to get along with our fellow humans, at least to the point where we don't overtly kill random people for not agreeing with us.

Narcissists I've known also have odd religious ideas, in particular believing that they are God's special favorites somehow; God loves them, so they are exempted from ordinary rules and obligations: God loves them and wants them to be the way they are, so they can do anything they feel like -- though, note, the narcissist's God has much harsher rules for everyone else, including you.
Actual religion is other-centered, it is about "re-connecting" (the word "religion") the Self with the Other. A religion that is telling people that if they kill themselves and take a bunch of other people, they are jihad heroes, is narcissistic by definition. It is also not a true religion. Muslims have this in common with Communists and Nazis, all of these things are ostensibly for the greater good (Communism is "share alike", Nazism is about cultural strength, Islam is about submission. But guess what? Nope, they are get people to funnel their energy into hurting others by relieving them of responsibility and "just following orders") but is actually for that small selfish voice that wants to push everyone around. Yea, no. Religion is about connecting with other people, not group superiority.

Well. Good luck on your quest to kill God.
Its not going to happen.
When the people are ready they will weed the lies out for themselves. The evidence has all been laid out and is right in our face. Who has to go concerning false Gods and prophet(s). The war will be a Spiritual,intellectual battle.
If you really want to help humanity. Do some real studying and reading. Quit wasting your time and energy fighting a non existing battle.
Quit being counter productive.
Get up off your unhealthy habit of spitting venom.
I wouldnt be surprised if you get an infraction for instigation.

There are millions of Muslims who would not even think of doing such a thing.

Fundamentalism hurts children and other living things.

I guess it all gets down to semantics. Is fundamentalism just another word for fanaticism?
