    religion is particularly inconsistent with vulture capitalism. Conquest advanced through big lies and grand theft.

    Both philosophies breed authoritarian, secretive and contemptuous leaders.

      What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.

      Now a proud atheist.

      Mormons put so much pressure on their communities even when you are not a member. It is harder to find a job, someone to work on your house, someone to take care of your kids, and shunned in public.

      I can tell you countless stories of fibs and lies they tell for money, power, or the church.

      Then they even get you in the end with baptism after death. Assholes.

      Religious doctrine and peer pressure makes people do immoral acts.
