The Evil Face Of Religion - Poem by Chinedu Dike
Since the dawn of humanity, the annals
of Religion are littered with awful tales.
Sacred scriptures have blessed lives -
and maimed them.
Sophistic doctrine breeds dreadful hostility.
Often, where Religion is strong - cruelty
reigns; as fanatics under 'total submission'
commit atrocities through blind devotion.
A close look at religious democides
suggests jamborees of genocides -
bloodlettings from which Atheism
recoils in its state of ungodliness.
On the faith mission to fulfill a divine goal,
Religion is torn between good and evil.
Slaying from age to age in the name of God,
hands of zealots are left defiled with blood.
