Submission + - Reading violent scriptures increases aggression

An anonymous reader writes: ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Reading violent scriptures increases aggressive behavior, especially among believers, a new study finds. The study by University of Michigan social psychologist Brad Bushman and colleagues helps to illuminate one of the ways that violence and behavior are linked. "To justify their actions, violent people often claim that God has sanctioned their behavior," said Bushman, faculty associate at the U-M Institute for Social Research and lead author of the article published in the March 2007 issue of Psychological Science. "Christian extremists, Jewish reactionaries and Islamic fundamentalists all can cite scriptures that seem to encourage or at least support aggression against unbelievers." id=3191

The Military Commissions Act of 2006 (or MCA) denies these individuals the most fundamental of protections — the writ of habeas corpus — which requires the government to justify to the court why it is depriving a detainee of his liberty.
Public Citizen has a web petition going here. Please let everyone know!"
