Religion is a disease......be sure to include your own!

in response to reader comment: Like cancer, religion is a disease with many facets.

I see religion now as a major danger to world peace - primarily due to the concept of "holiness". If one defiles the "holy" he must pay with his life - even if it is not his belief system.

The concept of "infidels" is significant, as we are all "infidels" to someone, somewhere on this planet.

Let's divide into camps - Christians over here, Muslims over there, Jews in Israel....and kill for God!

"There's only one true religion" - and of course, yours is it, right?

Daniel Pipes replies:

The notion that Judaism and Christianity pose a threat comparable to Islamism is nonsense. Islamism is better compared to fascism and communism.
