Should people be protected differently because of their religion?

You asked this question in your newsletter dated 24 February 2017.

My response to this would be "why should people be protected from their own stupidity?" In a nutshell my answer to this question is a resounding NO.

If religious people need

If religious people need protection their favorite deity should prevent them from coming to harm in the first place. Besides, according to the biblical fairy tale in Revelation 6:9-11 God has required that a magic number of believers must be killed before Jesus returns. So far that number hasn't been reached in 2,000 years. And since believers claim that they want Jesus to return so that they can go to heaven why would they want any protection from being killed when God said that a certain number must be killed? It sounds like they lack faith.
