I'm not comparing religion to Nazism but it certainly is a dictatorship, and its preaching is certainly not moral. Its "command" for being altruistic
dilutes the idea of being altruistic to begin with. The good parts of religion do not make up for the bad parts. Similarly, just because the Nazi
regime supported some charities doesn't make it a good movement as a whole.
Hahaha I think he's got a bit more ammunition than that. We're not against charity, altruism, or love. We don't argue against that. I feel a

You were presupposing that I would answer you, which I thought about not doing - on a kind of "don't feed the troll" principle.. and also, that I
really don't want to give you both the thing that is meat and drink to you - attention!
So, tonight's technique is to adopt a tone of high-minded nobility, freeing women from the shackles of sexual morality - making every pretty young
dim-witted thing feel she's free to service you, without having to worry about being faithful to her husband/boyfriend ("Come on girlie, that
old-fashioned religious morality thing is not for swingers like us!" ) or to worry about STIs, getting her heart broken or getting pregnant...
("Hey, girlie, I never said it was a permanent relationship! That's just your moral hangups talking, you gotta be free, what is this 'love' thing
anyway? It's just a word that parents tell girls like you to call that itch in their pants (panties, to you), so they canm satisfy all this
priestcraft nonsense they hammered into your vacant brain")
I know all the lines, I had a boyfriend who was a campaigning atheist. What a slimy patronising bastardly git he turned out to be.
Yes, I do think your obsession is for self-indulgence, because I have been on the receiving end of that 'desire to emancipate'. First as a confused
teen, then again as a grieving woman who had lost a marriage, a child and both parents, and then was being told that she deserved all that loss for
having followed 'conventional' ideas, even though I hadn't! (Then).
Comparing religion to Nazism is just childish, and a pure example of Godwin's law...
Love and compassion in Madness' words? Sorry, all I see is a desperate desire for self-promotion, for attention and for taking out on people he will
never have to meet face to face, his fury at not getting his own way.
