A judge yesterday rejected the defence that a teenage boy opened fire on his family because he was addicted to video games, convicting him of wounding his clergyman father and killing his mother after they fought over a game.
Full story here. Is it possible that newspapers throw in a religious reference to demonize the teenager further ("How could he shoot his parents considering they are such good, church-going people??") or is it a statement of further correlation between religion and immoral acts?
Maybe Christopher Hitchens is wrong. Religion doesn't poison everything. Religion is poison!
