Religious Beliefs and Mind Control

Everyone is entitled to follow any path, or any religion in life, UNLESS it forces or coerces other people.

In Iraq, Islam uses such force and coercion.  And here’s what a young student in Iraq shared with the media:

“I hate Islam and all the clerics because they limit our freedom every day and their instruction became heavy over us,” said Sara Sami, a high school student in Basra. “Most of the girls in my high school hate that Islamic people control the authority because they don’t deserve to be rulers.”

Isn’t it nice to know that a revolution amongst the fundamentalist islamic world might be simmering, growing, and getting ready to bubble over.

We might not all suffer a religious holocaust after all.

But wait.  Perhaps you agree that Islamic religious beliefs are forms of mind control.

But what about your religion?  Christian, Jew, Sikh, Hindi, Bhudhist, MTV viewer.

Have you been born into a certain belief system, only to conform to it, and believe in it with total faith?

Are there really still people out there as stupid as that?

All they need do is open their eyes and observe the world… right?

And that is what young Iraqis are doing, and I salute them for their revolution. I wish them well in their struggle against religious tyranny and coerced mind control.

In fact, I wish all of us well.
