They have a book that says they have an invisible friend, and that this invisible friend will provide them some kind of paradise after death. A way to ensure they get to this make-believe place is to kill people who don't have the same imaginary friend.

Belief in an afterlife is not only unreasonable, it's dangerous.

There is a subtle but important difference between these two situations. In the OP, the religious garb does not impede identification. In your situation it very much does. The best solution available to my mind, is to have the appropriate picture taken but if identification is required later have it performed by a woman.

You would support institutionalised and government sanctioned sexism? For what? So someone's imaginary friend doesn't get annoyed?
  No thanks. Freedom is far more important that supporting crazy, harmful and dangerous ideas.

People like you bring your problems on yourself. I've never had so much "fun" working that I wanted to do it 7 days a week, 12 hours a day.

I could think of a number of jobs where working that much would be awesome. None of them are in IT.

I'm working on a fairly large project as the lead architect. My hours sometimes hit 200 a month (it may not sound like a lot, but it is when the average is 160). The only reason I don't mind is because I get paid the same amount for every hour I work, and not for any hours I don't work. Working and not getting paid for it is for chumps.
