The Quote:

Organised religion is like organised crime; it preys on peoples’  weakness, generates huge profits for its operators, and is almost impossible to eradicate. Mike Hermann

The Qutbite:

A sect/variation of Muslim that believes sinners have to be punished in this lifetime (not the ‘afterlife’). Their main aim is to rid the world of sin and have everyone following the word of god. Of course this means following the Islamic word of god and therefore everyone who doesn’t is a sinner and needs to be eradicated.

Not surprisingly Osama bin Laden is a follower of the Qutbite tradition.
