With recent events aroud the world is it about time all religions were banned, they have been the excuse to wage wars, to devide, persecute and control people for the last 2k years so is it time to get rid of them.
From a very early age I was brought up in avery strict Catholic environment where my religion was the only true religion and the followers of other religion's were lower than the beasts of the field, thanks to having a brain and individual thought I dumped all that tripe decades ago. To me religion is for the weak minded and the easily led and for the powerful and corrupt to use it to that end.
Every war thats ever happened or about to the troops are told their god is with them and they are doings gods work, really I thought it was the word of politicians and the rich. So can we afford to continue with religion and should we. (To all religious fanatics the above are just my views and no offence is intended)

Would'nt banning religion be the next step up for Big Brother, telling us we can and can't believe in?
We arent talking about taking away peoples faith. did you read anything I just wrote above you? Its about taking away the right to preach and practice in public. People should be able to keep their beliefs to themselves. Isnt that the whole point in the first place? FAITH FOR YOURSELF?
(Matthew 28:18-20) . . .. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of people of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy spirit, 20 . . .
(Isaiah 2:3, 4) . . .. 4 And he will certainly render judgment among the nations and set matters straight respecting many peoples. And they will have to beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning shears. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, neither will they learn war anymore.
