... some sort of micro-organism causing a psychological illness that prevents the ... mind to function properly leading to perverted patterns of behaviour
It has been found that the parasite [protozoan Toxoplasma gondii.] has the ability to change the behaviour of its host: infected rats and mice are less fearful of cats—in fact, some of the infected rats seek out cat-urine-marked areas. This effect is advantageous to the parasite, which will be able to proliferate as a cat could eat the infected rat and then reproduce.

"Daniel Dennett sais that religions (at least the big ones) should be thought in school one after another as objectively as possible. This way a child can see that there is nothing more true in any of them."
You say that there must be an illness or a parasite, that infected the minds of these people, but this "illness" is most likely a psychological one and could affect any of us given the right circumstances.
After all who would say no to a hundred horny virgins who are waiting for you to obey all your wishes in the afterlife in 7Th heaven after you die for the Islam.
