Of all the dick moves mankind has come up with, killing someone in the name of God has got to be the worst.
As heinous as things like slavery or rape or, say, killing someone for land, or money or lust are, you're doing it for some tangible benefit for yourself.
I'm pretty sure God--if there is one--is a pretty big boy.
No one is shoving God into a locker.
He's not crying in a corner with his feelings all hurt.
And if he was, I thought he could just smite someone in the blink of an eye without your assist.
When you kill someone in the name of God or because they've "blasphemed" against God, you're doing it for yourself and no one else and blaming it on your god. You're doing it because your own little fee-fees are hurt or as a means to control others.
Nothing more and nothing less.
