Religion, or insanity?

Sometimes it's hard to tell the difference. Here's an article about a man who beat his two-year-old daughter to death (in a room littered with Bibles and "other religious literature"), supposedly in an effort to exorcise a demon he thought had entered her. He also stated that a "bad spirit" had entered him. The court apparently didn't accept either of these explanations, and sentenced him to over twenty years in prison, and deportation after he serves his time.

  1. The perpetrator may have had mental health issues, but belief in demons certainly didn't help the situation. This is why I get so nervous when I hear religious zealots (such as New Apostolic Reformation preachers) talking about demons as if they were real.
