Iceland Declares All Religions Are Weapons Of Mass Destruction | Andrew Hall

Andrew Kanard is one of the lawmakers who voted in favor of the new statute. He voiced what many think in this primarily atheist country:

Weapons of mass destruction by definition are weapons with the capacity to inflict death and destruction on such a massive scale and so indiscriminately that its very presence in the hands of a hostile power can be considered a grievous threat. Looking at the Crusades, the wars of jihadist conquest, or how evangelical climate denying oligarchs in America are destroying the planet, one realizes faith is fatal on a mass scale.

    “When deputies arrived, they were shocked by what they discovered. A 22-year-old son was chained to a bed and two girls had just been set free from their shackles. The house was covered in filth and the stench of human waste was overwhelming.

    Children said they were beaten, caged and shackled to beds if they didn’t obey their parents. Judge Bernard Schwartz said the children were not allowed to be filmed or photographed. Most of the 13 children — who ranged in age from 2 to 29 — were severely underweight and hadn’t bathed for months.

    The desperate cry for help from the 17-year-old came after a lifetime of living in such isolation, the girl didn’t know her address, the month of the year or what the word “medication” meant. But she knew enough to punch the digits 9-1-1 into a barely workable cellphone and then began describing years of horrific abuse to a police dispatcher.

    Deputies testified that the children said they were only allowed to shower once a year. They were mainly kept in their rooms except for meals, which had been reduced from three to one per day, a combination of lunch and dinner. The 17-year-old complained that she could no longer stomach peanut butter sandwiches — they made her gag.

    The children weren’t allowed to play like normal children. Other than an occasional family trip to Las Vegas or Disneyland, which one of the daughters mentioned at Friday’s hearing, they rarely left the home. They slept during the day and were active a few hours at night.

    Although the couple filed paperwork with the state to homeschool their children, learning was limited. The oldest daughter only completed third grade. “We don’t really do school. I haven’t finished first grade,” the 17-year-old said, according to Deputy Manuel Campos.

    The children said they were beaten, caged and shackled to beds if they didn’t obey their parents. Investigators found that the toddler had not been abused, but all of the children were hospitalized after they were discovered.”
