religion sucks

I'm sorry but if religion causes you to kill your own child, then there is something very wrong with your religion.

A lot of people in the comments section of that post, are chucking the old "mental illness" card out there. As if that somehow justifies the act, or takes away the responsibility of religious ideologies when sick, backwards freaks like this act worse than rabid dogs!!

Not to mention people who are coping with the multitude of REAL mental illnesses, WITHOUT having to suddenly commit mass murder or infanticide!! Please let's get this ABSOLUTELY clear, this man murdered the child because his god "told him to do it", religion is the key cause AND justification of this man's actions....end of story!!!!

I agree it is all to common for the media to point to mental illness in horrific cases like this, but point to the story of Abraham and his willingness to kill his own son and he was just being faithful to his god. Yet latter day advocates of religious infanticide are mentally ill, and yet when asked why they committed such a depraved act they point upwards and say god told me to do it. Perhaps we should start believing them.

Any visit to India will show you how religious inspired hatred had led to the mass murders of millions of people. Partition in 1947 was the worst example but even today murders are daily occurrences as mobs fight over temple sites and obscure rules.
