Religion, in all its forms, is just as bad as any dictator in the world today. While they lack the forceful presence of some of the dictators
on earth, they still do the basic things that dictators do that are frowned upon in modern society, plus they have the worst and most feared dictator
in history, god. religion control the things you do and how you do them. If your priest (reverend, rabbi ect.) asked you to donate more money to
"appease god" how many of you would defy him and put in the same amount or less?
Religion even has one up on the other dictators, it can control your mind to a degree. you are afraid to think certain thoughts for fear that god
would know you thought it. how many Iraqis do you think lived in fear of Saddam peering into their mind? And how many times did he threaten to throw
anybody into an eternal flaming toture pit? there is a very good argument for those who would say that saddam was a saint compared to god.
what does a populace eventually decide to do after years of abuse, they overthrow thier opressors. only in this uprising, there doesn't need to be
any guns, bloodshed or death. You simply need to stop giving you unquestioned faith and obedience to an invisible, magic jew. easy to say but
difficult to execute, much like a real insurrection. But, also like a real insurrection, it has to start somewhere.
If no one believed in god, some people would say that the world would lack any sense of moral at all. But, do you think that there would be a problem
in the middle east if religion didn't exist? would arab be more prone to violence because of their skin color or geographical location, no. Its time
to overthrow this nonexistent dictator before more die as an indirect result of implied existence.
