It is a truism that almost any sect, cult or religion will legislate its creed into law if it aquires the political power to do so, and will follow it by suppressing opposition, subverting all education to seize early the minds of the young and by killing, locking up, or driving underground all heretics.
-Robert A. Heinlein
I have issues with religion, sometimes I wonder how people who believe so much in liberty, can believe that we are not truly free, that there is a God laying in wait to send us to hell if we dare disobey him. God wiped out the whole earth, (save one family). In the Bible, God was always wanting to kill people. That's just not the God that I believe in but to each his own.
I see a parallel between people who are brainwashed by the media, and people who are brainwashed by religion, giving the same parroted answers and believing any other views to be automatically wrong, not even wanting to listen or look into any other possibilities.
As messed up as America is right now, all I can say is that I am so thankful for our freedom of religion.
The world is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion.
