Well hopefully this is the start of a trend leading to the ousting of the religious right in America and it's government. It always confused me how they have such a large influence there when the constitution advocates separation of church and state.
Because they ignore the point about the government not endorsing any religion but latch onto the part about not suppressing the free exercise of any religion. And since we all know the US was founded by Christians, based on Christianity, and is a Christian nation, they think this means that their religion is protected by the constitution while everyone else's is not.
Religion is an insult to human dignity. Without it you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.--Steven Weinberg
Religion can never reform mankind because religion is slavery--Robert G. Ingersoll
I don't know why people compare George Carlin to God. He's great and all, but he's no George Carlin.-Anon.
Glad someone posted this. This was the best news I heard all day.
Extremists and radicals kill their own message with their delivery. Religionists weren't happy with just following their delusions and keeping it to themselves, they used it as a springboard to be pushy assholes and to usurp power and illegally influence politics. Religion is associated more and more with self-immolating monks, suicide bombers, child molesting priests, greedy lying evangelical hypocrites, abortion clinic bombings and people flying planes full of people into buildings full of people. and it seems that while religion itself is down, the fastest growing are the muslims and the evangelicals, two of the most radical faces of religion.
I remember a guy in Religulous who said that he forsaw religion ending in 100 years. As wonderful as that sounds, that is incredibly wishful thinking. People are too scared and too stupid to let go of something so deep-seated and so illogical that quickly. But this is a good sign of a trend that is moving in the right direction.
I've read other predictions that the United States as we know it today, will not last 200 more years. Same prediction said that Christianity will die off in the same period. I sometimes think that time has already run out on Christianity, it's living on borrowed time. I can easily see Scientologists seeking power for their ilk. I hope that if Christianity does disappear, Islam disappears with it.
