A 16-year-old girl in Argentina said she was seeing bugs and animals that were not really there. The girl’s older sister and parents decided to take her to their pastor for help. He said she was possessed by demons and evil spirits and that she needed to be gang-raped and to have her older sister gouge out her eyes in order to exorcise the demons from her. Regarding the gouging out of her eyes, the pastor was probably thinking of Matthew 5:29 which says that Jesus said (all of Christianity is nothing but hearsay), “And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.”
The 16-year-old victim survived the gang-rape and the gruesome attack by her sister that gouged out her eyes. She’s now fighting for her life in a hospital (pictured above).
Just last week the actor Morgan Freeman’s granddaughter was murdered in an exorcism. What can be done to stop this religious insanity? The only long term solution that strikes the root of the problem is Deism. Deism’s reliance on and promotion of our innate God-given reason will make tragedies like these a thing of the dark, religious past. To prove this point, ask yourself if you would ever do such things as these that were done to the 16-year-old girl or to Morgan Freeman’s granddaughter. Of course, the answer is “NO!“. The reason you would never do anything like this, or allow anything like this to be done anywhere near you, is because you’re a Deist and Deists value reason. Reason tells us Satan, devils, demons and jinn are all fictional characters that were created by the clergy in order for the clergy to better control people through fear. Our innate God-given reason also tells us Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Mormonism and Baha’i (and any religion that promotes belief in demons) are all man-made religions which are falsely claimed to be God-made or God-inspired. Our reason also warns us not to have anything to do with these religions as they are all unreasonable and dangerous and, in fact, ungodly.
Deism, IF Deists give it a fighting chance, can eliminate the “revealed”/hearsay religions and all the fear, superstition and violence they cause. Imagine the beautiful world we will create by educating people to the fact that they are not limited to either “revealed”/hearsay religions or to Atheism because they have a true, rational, natural and empowering alternative in Deism!
