"Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion."

Such bullshit. Man loves killing one another and have done since the dawn of time. Religion or no religion, people will find reasons to justify our baser instincts

Religion gets used as an excuse for these type of attacks and others but often it's people with no religion who say this because they don't understand them. There's more evidence to point the finger at America (oil wars) and ours (selling arms to Iran).

Agreed. Unfortunately, it's the result of it.

The Qu'ran and the teachings of Mohammed are the entire cause of all this mayhem. The literal interpretations of stories makes sane people into bloodthirsty madmen.

Look at the flag of Saudi Arabia - it contains the 'shahada' which is the notion of one God and Mohammed is his messenger and its underlined with a sword. That says it all. It was a message spread with the sword. Most people would not knowingly convert to such a doctrine. This is the only way it can and has been spread through the world.

No enlightenment period. No 'reformation'. Just subjugation and backward mentality.

You can't blame the Quran, these ordinary people are being radicalised by fundamentalist clerics preaching a militant Islamism.
