Do not take my word for anything, but research these things yourself. You'll be amazed by the religious lies and crimes.

Most of the articles on this site were written 2000-2007, when critical information on religion was scarce on the internet. Nowadays it is all over the place, thankfully.

"Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without religion good people do good things, and evil people do bad things. But for good people to do evil things – it takes religion."
Steven Weinberg
