protected from prosecution by their superiors who buried evidence, Islamic extremists slaughter innocent people to force their will, a Jewish state
steals land and imprisons an entire population, American Christians proclaim the rights of all as long as you're not gay while preaching one
homophobic line of their "sacred text and conveniently ignoring all the other little tidbits they find a little too inconvenient to stick to like not
wearing clothes woven from two types of materials...
Remind me again about "values" and "soapboxes"...
People are people, they can believe what they want to believe. The problem arises when the religious want to force their will on the rest of society
and preach their own beliefs into the ears of others, or force their will into law.
Spirituality and belief is not dangerous, organized religion and arrogance combined is. Most of the violence in this wold is driven be one religious
group being deluded enough to think that they are "special" and more "righteous" than others.
The truth is that those same people who think they are superior to others because they believe in a brand of religion are actually the most weak,
easily led and easily influenced by others. They are not capable of original thinking, they need a leader to follow and a book of instructions (which
they still selectively choose from).
On the whole, I long for the day when Atheism rules and these ridiculous indoctrinations end. Maybe then we'll be closer to having genuine peace on
Earth and genuine freedom from religious zealous who want nothing less than total control.
