I try not to under-estimate the stupidity of people. Honest. I've seen people throw blanks into camp fires. And recruits pick up "dud" mortar shells on a firing range less than a day after being told that that was a really bad idea.
That's "the devil quoting scripture".
This "encoded in their religion" could be applied to all Judeo-Christo-Islamic groups. It's in the Old Testament, isn't it? Consult a professional god-botherer if you need details.
