Let us look at some fact about religion:
Because of religion, more human beings have been murdered, tortured, maimed, deigrated, discriminated against, humiliated, hated and scorned than any
other reason in the totality of the history of man.
Today the only wars under way are religious wars. Arabs are killing Jews and vice versa. (Palestine and Israel) Ethnically religious groups are
killing ethnically religious groups ( Bosnia, Ireland ) in the aftermath of the demise of the Soviet Union. Arabs of one religion are killing Arabs of
another. (Iraquis killing Iraquis)
Catholics and Protestants are killing each other in Ireland and the Bristish Isle. There is an endless list of chashes in Africa and the emerging
nations of Southeast Asia.
Religion, more than politics and economic, kills and cripples humankind. There has never in all known history been a genocide of anykind which was not
fueled by religion. (Hitler against Jews)
Every religious organization of Earth is designed to gain economic and political power for those in the religion. (Bush asking religious organizations
to back his agenda)
Most people are bound by ideas which are not true. They believe in myths as if they were fact.
They grow old early in life. The wonderful personal resources available to them are stiffled and lost. ( I know of a girl that got a full scholarship
to a major University but she was told by her parents that she can not go away from her home and religion. The family is Jehova witness.) Now what
religion like that is allow to stunt young people's grow.
HombreConUnPollo You brough up a good subject.
