The videos of these kinds of barbaric acts are scarce, but the occurrence of these kinds of atrocities are far too frequent in countries that are ruled by religious laws. Yet we still hear members of the Islamic faith trying to sell us the idea that it is a peaceful religion. I would go so far to say that no religion can claim to be peaceful, least of all Islam. The entire globe is in the grip of fear due to constant threats from religious zealots who claim that Allah has charged them with the task of taking the lives of those who do not believe the same things they do.
The ignorant, archaic ideals that drive people to commit these kinds of crimes need to be stamped out in every country and culture around the globe! How do we accomplish a task of that magnitude? I have no idea, but I choose to join the ranks of people who simply believe in the sanctity of life for no other reason than the fact that I value mine and I want my fellow human beings to have the most productive and fulfilling life as possible.
