    Centuries ago some old evil pope decreed that people were to be kept uneducated because illiterate people were easier to control.  Even kings could not read or write; that's why priests were employed in royal courts.  The pope ruled the known world, and if he couldn't get one king to attack another over some false issue or other, the pope would threaten to excommunicate king and every citizen of that country if he was not obeyed.

    They like to think they have that same power nowadays here in America (and if creationists or proponents of 'intelligent design' have their way, our educational level will go backward some 500 years or more).  In Europe the majority of people thumb their noses at religion, and others only pay lip service to any religion.

    Only in America do so many (per fawning, slobbering, sentimental, miraculous media blabbering, at least - Robin Roberts on GMA, in particular) fall for all the delusional claptrap and still give religious leaders their hard-earned money to keep the "leaders" fat, happy, housed in mansions, driving fancy cars, and some even own jet planes.

    Yeeeesh.

    I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
