Hey, it’s that religion of peace in action again, this time, a Russian nanny decapitates her charge, then goes parading around through the streets of Moscow, carrying the severed head, shouting “Allahu Akbar” and threatening to blow herself up, all while wearing a burka.
But this has nothing to do with Islam, right?
The nanny, Gyulchehra Bobokulova, 38, was arrested by authorities before she could cause any more harm to the Moscow residents trying to get into the Oktyabrskoye Pole metro station. The dead girl is identified as Anastasia (Nastya) Meshcheryakova. Her decapitated body was found in her cot, dressed in night clothes. Bobokulova had also set the room ablaze before she left, but the fire was put out by responders.
The local media reports that Bobokulova shouted “I hate democracy. I am a terrorist. I want you dead. You have become so hardened, you have eliminated so many of us. Look I am a suicide bomber, I will die, doomsday will come in a second.” But yeah, Islam isn’t to blame, right?
Experts suspect that Bobokulova was suffering from manic psychosis, but it was her religious beliefs that gave her mental illness a deadly direction to follow. Here is someone with problems who decided that the voices in her head were telling her to commit murder against a child, carry her head around and threaten innocent people with death because it’s Allah’s will.
But it’s never Allah’s will because Allah is imaginary. All gods are imaginary. There is no evidence whatsoever for any of them. People who take these things seriously, deadly seriously in this case, cause untold death, destruction and pain and there are far too many people who are far too willing to simply excuse it because they’re terrified to criticize religion at all.
They shouldn’t be. Religion is disgusting. Religion demonstrably causes harm. And that’s why Horror Show Sunday exists.
