Part 2 of a 14 part series presented by YouTube's victimlesscriminal, Religion Is The Great Hijacker explores the tendency of religious institutions to "hijack" common human experiences by branding them as the exclusive domain of their god. Examples include morality, the 'soul,' 'sin,' comfort, justice, charity, mystery and many more.
I will be attempting to post the entirety of this series over the next few days, hopefully to the enjoyment of Liveleak's non-religious users and no doubt the disdain of its religious followers.
To quote victimlesscriminal's description:
"Religion does not have any of its own resources - they are hijacked from other areas of human life.
Cynical and desperate religious leaders are trying harder and harder to claim that some of the most numinous and personal human experiences are the unique province of religion. They are doing this because they are increasingly realising that they have nothing else left in reserve. They are bankrupt."
