Violence in the name of RELIGION, Marian Kamensky cartoon

religious violence

I have to say, Marian Kamensky has some balls. Using the word “religion” disparagingly is just not done in America by either politicians or the mainstream media.  I would be interested to know if any major newspapers ran with this cartoon.  I also noticed he made sure to put the word RELIGION in the art so even if they removed it from the title they could not remove it from the political cartoon itself.  After all, the media needs the share and the politicians need the votes of those 75% of Americans who believe – along with Justice Scalia – that The Devil is a real person. In league with atheists, agnostics and some billions of people who are in Devil Free religions.

1984 was the year Evangelical Christianity officially became the mainstay of Republican politics with the bonding and reelection of Ronald Reagan and Jerry Falwell. Here is the list of Christian Pro Life violence in America since 1984.

9 murders
17 attempted murders
153 assault or battery
3 kidnappings
41 bombings
173 arsons
91 attempted bombings / arsons
619 bomb threats
1630 trespassing
1264 incidents of vandalism
Too many death threats to count

This is not SECTARIAN violence this RELIGIOUS violence caused by RELIGION.

In much of the rest of the world these numbers are in the millions so we do have a lot of catching up to do. And I am sure Justice Scalia – along with the MAJORITY of the Supreme Court – and Louis Gohmert, Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Talk Radio, Fox News and the Tea Party Ugly will do their best to catch up. After all, what the Taliban and Muslim violence is about is religious EVANGELISM.
