The barbaric coward attack on Charlie Hebdo urges me to ask: ‘why not prohibiting religion if all it ever did was discriminating, torturing, abusing and killing millions of citizens?’

Societies, freedom of speech and intellectualism have never been more at stake than these days. Fanatics of all colour have made our lives that of a bird sitting in a cage and waiting to die without ever being able to sing the songs responsible for it to sit in that cage in the first hand.
A few weeks ago it was someone trying to tell us what kind of movies should be watched at cinemas and now, some hard-core idiots threatening art and the freedom of speech in its entirety. How much longer should we tolerate a boiling pot of shit that was obviously due to overcook a long time ago?
Religion has emerged as an answer for all those humans that are not strong enough to face the fact that they don’t understand their existence. It later evolved to a tool that helped to abuse, threaten, discriminate against, torture and kill millions of citizens over centuries. Why, after two centuries of Enlightenment, after science provided a tool to replace religious blindness with reason, do we still accept that religion terrorizes our daily lives? If it’s wrong to publish a cartoon illustrating Mohammed, why shouldn’t we prohibit the worship of said Mohammed?
If he is the source of so much trouble, then eliminate it.
When small children don’t play peacefully because they can’t agree on how to share, parents often take away their toys. It’s one of the most effective measures against meaningless fighting. I wonder why we don’t learn from parents that did a better job than the parents of fanatics like the barbarians who killed the people that make our lives richer. Take away their toys, condemn and prohibit:
- Religion in all its forms and entirety (-> replace it by education)
- All warship of idols; public or private
- The manufacturing, trade and possession of weapons
- Any kind of public threat in the form of discrimination against freedom of speech in all its colours
 Although we should be careful with that and assess „how many of us have really benefited from it?”.
 Of whom nobody has ever seen a real picture!
