Atheism and western civilization would not exist without religion. Everyone should be thankful for Judeo-Christian values for creating our great society which values individual liberties & privacy/property rights, as well as, universities & scientific/medical advancements and franchises like Star Wars, the Matrix & Lord of Rings, which all derive from religion, as well as, the preservation of historical literature by the Catholic church. Western Civilization and the things it has brought us (libraries, universities, electricity, trains, combustion engines, refrigeration, automobiles, airplanes, radios, radars, microwaves, TVs, computers, satellites, GPS, spaceships, smartphones, etc.) would not exist without the Judeo-Chrisitan advancement of western civilization. It amazes me how so many can be so ignorant of this fact. Without religion we'd all still he living in caves & we would have no written languages. If one pays close attention, you'll realize as western civilization is falling away from God & family more atrocities like this are occurring: attacks on churches, school shootings, gang violence, police brutality, corrupt politics, etc..
Islam is a perversion of Arianism, which is a perversion of Christianity. Its incompatible where there is a separation of church & state. Under Islam religion & government are one and the same. According to PEW Research center over 50% of muslims worldwide support the global implementation of Sharia Law.

Religion is not the droid you are looking for.
If a religion can show you god, sweet.
But if a representative of a religion tells you about god and starts to boss you around- RUN
By the way Buddha is real, he still exists (kinda) but is not a god nor does it require followers, i think if we all went that way for example not a single head would roll.(Well heads would still roll but just animals cause i like to kill and eat things and take their eads)

Since no-one was killed, no bombs went off, it's hard to blame the Notre Dame incident of the same people responsible for these horrific Sri Lankan attacks.

Muslims bomb other wrong thinking Muslims why would they pick and choose which Christians bomb? Buddhists aren't known to be suicide bombers unless it's some nationalist attack
