Religion is the problem. It has always been the place where cowards and bullies take refuge. Christians are no better. Religion's m.o. has always been to scapegoat one group - progressive women, progressive blacks, non-believers, etc. Religion is the place where ignorance and superstition is given comfort and nurture.
If you are religious, you are part of the problem. There is blood on your hands. I encourage all good people of sound mind and strong character to stand up and say "no" to religion. Let us end the ignorance and madness once and for all.
Be brave, be strong, be an atheist!
