“Religion has many redeeming qualities…”

leave a comment »

I see this from religious apologists a lot. And to be fair, there are some good qualities that religion brings to the world.

However, there is a fundamental downside that casts any good religion does into stark shadow.

Indoctrinating Telling people that “everything will come together as god wills it”, “god has a plan for the world”, and “even if life on earth is hard, when you get to heaven it will be paradise” does one hideous thing. It encourages these poor people to do nothing and “put it in the hands of the lord”. Everything is NOT going to be okay until we as a human race start taking care of things RIGHT NOW… not put them off for our children to deal with because we believe some orbiting sky fairy has shit firmly under control.

Religion stifles creativity, encourages the growth of a non-taxed entertainment industry, and can lead to stunning ignorance.

Atheists need to come out and start challenging this delusional behavior. Although I’m not a huge fan or Karl Marx, he did correctly state that “Religion is the opiate of the masses”… smoke this, and everything will be juuuuuust fine.

Keep on preaching, Bill Maher!
