  •  Religion is not the problem (0+ / 0-)

    Please... it's an age old excuse to blame religion. So then money is a problem and guns are a problem and sex is a problem. It's how one uses each that creates a problem. When hypocrites stand behind the cloak of religion, guns, money, then they are creating the problem. How many times have we heard guns don't kill people, people do. Right now the misuse of money is killing more people than guns. Absent any religion, some people will still cheat on their spouses and hurt people and some will be faithful and generous. I for one believe in God and I am grounded in my faith, but I don't expect everyone to agree with me. Look past the cloaks people use to rise to the top and blame the people solely motivated by their greed and desires. Anyone who treats others with such disdain is simply a jerk, religious or not. I can see through their disguise when I cast my vote.

      but folks brandish religion like a weapon in their quest to separate human beings and play the politics of so-called "higher moral ground", it's hard not to attack that weapon that they use.

      Thanks for making an important point...
