] Jealousy fueled witch hunts in Papua New Guinea

] CANBERRA, Australia (AP)— On a tropical island
] in Papua New Guinea where most people live in
] huts, a mob armed with guns, machetes and axes
] stormed a wooden house by night. They seized
] Helen Rumbali and three female relatives, set
] the building on fire and took the women away to
] be tortured. Their alleged crime: Witchcraft.

] After being repeatedly slashed with knives,
] Rumbali's older sister and two teenage nieces
] were released following negotiations with
] police. Rumbali, a 40-something former
] schoolteacher, was beheaded. Her assailants
] claimed they had clear proof that Rumbali had
] used sorcery to kill another villager who
] recently died of sickness: The victim's grave
] bore the marks of black magic, and a swarm of
] fire flies apparently led witch hunters to
] Rumbali's home.

[...]

] Until last month [May 2013], the country's
] 42-year-old Sorcery Act allowed for a belief
] in black magic to be used as a partial legal
] defense for killing someone suspected of
] inflicting harm through sorcery. The
] government repealed the law in response to
] the recent violence.

Even IF it was only jealousy, religious belief is what made it possible. But one can only believe in witchcraft if one believes in the fiction of religion. Murders like this were caused by religion.
