I'm extremely saddened by this news and wish that everyone all over the world would embrace rational and reasonable thinking in their lives.
This is what at happens when you have people who believe in the imperceptible, justify their actions, to please whichever undetectable deity they choose to dilute their worldview with. Reasonable and rational people that lack belief in things that are unknowable by science don't try to appease these human made deity constructs with irrational actions like this because well ... it's irrational. But when you live in a way that does not align with reality, ie. believing in something that is undetectable, trying to please said undetectable thing with crazy actions, or live in a way in which you are more concerned with "the after life" rather than this one life you live right now, you set yourself up for some very difficult and sometimes nasty mental constructs about what is right and wrong within this world we all share and how you should treat others while you are here.
Treat each other with love!
