Charlie

In case you missed it, here’s the cover from the latest issue of Charlie Hebdo, one year after the brutal attack by religious fanatics. The title above the caricature of The Almighty reads, “One year on, the assassin remains at large.”

The cover is a timely reminder that since time immemorial religious fanatics, goaded on by the words in their holy books, have been in the business of wholesale slaughter. However, in one way the cover is wrong: God doesn’t exist, so it isn’t the assassin. The assassins are those who follow the bloody commands of the Iron Age, goat-herding  slaveholders, and the illiterate  medieval pedophile and apparent schizophrenic who wrote, respectively, the Bible and the Quran.

Slaughter in the name of religion will continue with sickening regularity as long as religious fanatics continue to use God as a three-letter justification for murder.
