Lets torture him becasue he isnt a real man.

Although this blog is usually for questions posed to me, I’ve just read an article that made me feel sick.

3 boys of South Africa have been confirmed to have been starved, tortured and killed at a camp that their parents sent them to so they can become ‘Real Men’. Yes you read it correctly, their parents sent them to a camp that resulted in their deaths because they boys were ‘effeminate or gay’.

I think you know what im about to tell you next. Why was there a problem with these boys being effeminate and/or gay? The families were Christians! I really want to be surprised, but I’m not. Because these boys had been born a way different, either in preferring a gender that men 2000 years ago didn’t approve of, or simply being less masculine, they were killed.

Un-Christian you are saying? They arent real Christians? They seem to think that they are. So shall we look a little more into the torture these boys had to go though for 10 weeks at the hands of this ‘modern inquisition’? Handcuffed to a bed through the night, not allowed to go to the bathroom, forced to eat their own faeces. Beaten with planks of wood if he failed to do the grueling manual labour that would make him ‘a man’ and have a pillow held over their heads and shocked with a stun gun. But this is all okay because it would save the boys from going to hell.. it sounds like they were already there.

The article if anyone wants to look a little further into it.. http://www.patheos.com/blogs/wwjtd/2013/04/what-can-motivate-a-person-to-think-that-torture-is-a-lesser-crime-than-love/

This is why we need education. Not just facts and numbers but education about people, cultures. We need acceptance. Only fear and fear-filled religions can make individuals commit these kind of heinous acts.

I agree! It is not healthy human nature to commit such an awful act. Fortunatly I think the western world will come to accept people for who they are, but when? How many more of these kinds of discusting barbary will we need to hear about untill it stops?
As for the eastern world, this kind of story wouldnt make headlines..

Violent religions are only tempered by knowledge. That is all that has happened in the places where behavior like this is rare. All of the Abrahamic religions are bloody. Moderates are selective with their interpretations and beliefs but only because of their education. It is not surprising that, generally, the more educated someone is, the less religious they tend to be.
