    I'm sorry, but it was because of religion. Obviously her mental condition was part of the problem, but she never would have had such ideas if it wasn't for religion.

    All religion should be abolished.

    Yes? I simply said it was contributing factor, which if it was taken away this would have never happened.

    That is irrelevant. When someone without any particular belief does something terrible, it's the fault of the human condition.
    She was psychotic.

    Shayma Ali, 36, who was suffering from psychosis
    The first piece of description other than her age is telling us that she's psychotic. She was most likely a visionary due to her psychosis. This had nothing to do with her religion and everything to do with her mental illness. Don't try and delude yourself.

    You can't have one without the other.
    That's a totally original and hilarious joke.

    Of course it did. If she had simply killed the child because she was told to by Santa Claus then I would say it was nothing to do with religion, but that isn't the case. Allah told her to kill her child. Of course it's to do with religion as well as her mental instability.

    Psychosis is basically when someone loses all contact with reality. Just because Allah manifested Himself in her delusions/hallucinations, it doesn't mean it had anything to do with religion at all. You mentioned it yourself - it could've been Santa Claus that did it. Often people will project what they know most about.

    Not really, I'm quite tired and you are obviously oblivious to the world around you, and what mental illness can actually make people do.

    Anyway I'm off to bed, have fun...

    Why even mention religion in the article, like? No relevance... Unless, of course, you're sane.
    Ummm, she believed Islamic style demons were possessing her daughter. While I'm not saying that this is religion's fault I don't think you can possibly understand the incident without bringing the fact her mental instability was built around her family and religion.

    Mental Instability does not mean you go around killing people. You're simply more susceptible to irrational suggestion, a suggestion of which came from religion.
    The fact she had a daughter was also a contributing factor, should we ban children?

    So when you said we should get rid of religion you meant only from people with mental disabilities then?

    Anyone who is willing to do harm to another because of their belief should not be allowed the luxury of believing in anything.

    Most religious people are mentally unstable to some extent. How else could one convice themselves that there's a bearded man living in the sky, controlling our lives, constantly watching us, and communicating with us all simultaneously through telepathy of some description.
    Lol and yet here i am not drooling on myself surprising with how mentally unstable i must be simply because i dont share your outlook on life i do apologise that my BELIEVES are not in line with yours and therefore i must be inherently be worth less then you as your opinion is both witty and fits in with the modern trend of atheism bashing all religions i will now take myself outside and do more illogical things that baffle though who obviously are far more intellectually superior...

    It wasn't intended to be a joke, and I'm very aware it's not original (many great minds before me have held such a statement to be true).

    We have to admit that nobody who describes themselves as religious has the authority to call anybody else 'mentally deranged'. I mean, come on guys, seriously?
    Man I wouldn't even know where to begin with how ironically retarded this post is.

    I could make an opposing post, but even if by some miraculous luck my response made you a little less ignorant, there are still millions like and worse than you, so I won't bother.

    Peace Out
