Nepalese Man Kills Ten Year Old Boy Because A Priest Told Him A Human Sacrifice Would Cure His Son’s Illness

Posted on 02 Aug 2015 at 5:11pm

Article after article I have to think up some fresh new way to attack religion whenever its ugly side inevitably rears its head, which of course is almost all the time- it has become very tiring.

Is it too much to ask people to apply reason and logic to whatever they are told, whether it be by their parents or by their infallible priests? So long as we give credence to faith, which after all is belief without evidence, things like this would crop up over and over and over again.

A Nepalese man has been arrested after he murdered a ten year old boy in a ritual killing. His son was sick, and a shaman (holy priest) told him that the only way to cure him would be to kill another human.

So this obviously very sick man and his accomplices lured the boy away to a temple and carried out some rituals. According to CNN, he was then taken to a field nearby, where three people held him down as another slit his throat. When police found him, the boy’s head was almost severed from his body.

Eleven people in total, including the holy man, have been arrested for their involvement, with the perpetrators facing a life sentence. At least five have confessed to their part in the killing.

Ugh, this is just sickening.
