  •  If morals are taken from religion (4.00)
    it seems like people all too often make up a nice convenient religion that reassures them that whatever they want to do is moral.

    Death penalty, revenge, torture, racism, sexism, homophobia, child abuse, back-alley coathanger abortions, slaughtering civilians in a war of aggression launched with lies... all these are perfectly okay, according to the perverted death cult heresy so prevalent now in much of the United States, which falsely calls itself "Christian".

    None of that is moral by my standards. I don't see that believing in just any old random religion automatically makes a person moral. I think people are under an obligation to judge religions by whether they are moral, not blindly let their morals be dictated by a religion.

    Because... some religions are very bad moral influences indeed.

    Massacre is not a family value.
