    In my view if you objectively weigh all the good things religion has done for your community against their contribution to our mutual assured destruction I think you could make a decent case for having people advocating the dogma of any organized religion labeled terrorist saboteurs.

    I'll leave the institutionalized pedophilia out of it, cause that's sort of Catholic specific and as regards man's inhumanity to man I'm talking religion in general.

    I'll take off the crusades, and all the genocidal pograms and holocausts, and whats left that drives me crazy is the idea that people who join your religions consensus to be law abiding according to your norms, mores and conventions are wonderful and everyone else is an outlaw, infidel, heretic, who's supposed to be put under the ban.

      for short periods of time, some do well. But because they are comprised of people, that never lasts.

      The notion that somehow this cosmic ordering is going to imbue people with some sort of higher spiritual morality is often bunk. Especially given the way that various forms of bigotry and isms are incorporated into organized religion.

      Blind adherence doesn't cultivate an examined life.
