    (religion) as destructive?

    I'm not an atheist but I prefer no one religion over any other. Religion closes minds and causes violence. Human history is rife with it.

    Religion, not spirituality mind you, but hierarchical religion presided over by men in robes is something the human race needs to outgrow.

    Reaganomics noun pl: belief that unregulated capitalism can produce unlimited goods for unlimited people on a planet with finite resources and we the people can increase revenue by decreasing revenue.

      No, definitely not.

      What constitutes bigotry is to consider orthodox belief as a mental illness and merely the product of mind control or something. Relegating all orthodox believers to the province of the sanatorium would mean jailing Dr. King again, this time for his Christian beliefs rather than his support for civil rights and opposition to war.
