Now, you read this and then tell me that religion does not make humans lose their mind and critical thinking capacity, and replaces them with some kind of pre-sentient mush :
A Jerusalem rabbinical court recently sentenced a wandering dog to death by stoning. The cruel sentence stemmed from the suspicion that the hound was the reincarnation of a famous secular lawyer, who insulted the court’s judges 20 years ago.
Seriously. I rest my case.
