    Nigeria: Religious Violence Kills 27

    By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
    Published: January 18, 2010
    Angry Muslim youths set fire to a church filled with worshipers, starting a riot that killed at least 27 people and wounded more than 300 in Jos, in northern Nigeria, officials said Monday. Sani Mudi, a spokesman for the local imam, said 22 people died in fighting between Christians and Muslims after rioters set fire to a Catholic church on Sunday. Five others died Monday from their wounds. More than 300 people were killed in inter-religious violence in Jos in 2008.

    Noose ...i understand what you are saying,but Religion has helped many people come to grips with things that have happened to them.....i would say that those who go to extremes with religion as compared to those who keep it close, make it look stupid,and in some instances,dangerous....i know a few people who were ready to call it a day,but taking some time with the "good book" helped them overcome their urge to "end it all".....so it can serve a useful purpose....

    The brainwashed kill each other, at no cost to anyone.
    They need to make it ' fair and balanced" and find some Scientolocrites and Morons to toss in the stew.
    Maybe even make it Kosher !
    Wouldn't want to look anti semitic !

    Yeah, but it sure beats the hell outta atheism, which accounted for more pointless deaths in the last century than the entire history of religion can even shake a stick at.
