During the reign of the Emperor Constantine the Great, Christianity become the dominant religion of the Roman Empire


Throughout the ages, the dogma has been taught as truth - Hellfire, Homophobia, Miracles and Heaven. With little knowledge, any person at the time would be scared NOT to submit to this religion.

Organised religion exists today, but you forget how it got there; years of threats, promise, and supernatural stories alluding to miracles and some supernatural Big Brorther.

Many preists preached that un-baptised babies would go to "limbo" or "purgotory" - Which mother (looking out for the best) would not want to submit to this religion and abide by it's "holy" doctrine.

The violence it causes continues, the separation and division it causes continues, the immoral preaching continues;


"I am convinced that it is never right to settle any policy simply out of fear of the consequences . . . For all I know it is within the providence of God that the human race should destroy itself in this manner.
Dr. Geoffrey Fisher, the Archbishop of Canterbury talking about a possibile nuclear holocaust.


"The traditional teaching of the church has proven to be the only failsafe way to prevent the spread of HIV/Aids."
Pope Benedict XVI on his talk where he claimed that condoms were worse than aids

These "traditions" are dogmatic nonsense and were used to control the gullible in the past, it's seems to be the utmost stupidity to continue to support these pagan beliefs today where we have much more evidence than to be so gullible to such extraordinary claims.

Please, before claiming i've attacked your religion, be aware that this is a debate, religion isn't free from criticism.

Organized religion has, similar to some other ideologies, allowed groups of invasive extremists to run the show. It would be very difficult to deny, that elitism, monopoly-aspiration and requests of privileges have been a big part of religionism in its organized forms.

Even to this day there are anti-democractic factions in religion, fighting egalitarian principles.
