BAGHDAD - Religious vigilantes have killed at least 40 women this year in the southern Iraqi city of because of how they dressed, their mutilated bodies found with notes warning against "violating Islamic teachings," the police chief said Sunday.
"The women of Basra are being horrifically murdered and then dumped in the garbage with notes saying they were killed for un-Islamic behavior..."
"In September, the headless bodies of a woman and her 6-year-old son were among those found..."
Last night, I followed this excerpt with the outraged viscera reading this evoked from my soul.
Leaving it here all night plagued me; not because I was afraid of retribution for what I said about Muhammad, or the various threats I made to these hideous monsters, but because I realized I'd stooped to their level.
At that moment, I was willing to do to them (or much worse) what they are doing to the innocent women in their society, whose only crime is being born into the wrong religious sector with a shred of individuality and will of their own.
I won't pretend I don't feel hatred for the retarded freaks who destroyed the innocents. Removing my insults to their idols wasn't a concession to them, but rather an acquiescence to myself; an affirmation of my peaceful creed.
Crazy world we live in.
"Just as a man's denominational orientation is the result of
upbringing, and only the religious need as such slumbers in his
soul, the political opinion of the masses represents nothing
but the final result of an incredibly tenacious and thorough
manipulation of their mind and soul."
