If the religious actually believed in a god…priests wouldn’t rape kids…believer’s  wouldn’t use violence/terrorism…and women would have equality…

“The truth is that male
religious leaders have had – and still have – an option to interpret
holy teachings either to exalt or subjugate women. They have, for their
own selfish ends, overwhelmingly chosen the latter. Their continuing
choice provides the foundation or justification for much of the
pervasive persecution and abuse of women throughout the world. This is
in clear violation not just of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
but also the teachings of Jesus Christ, the Apostle Paul, Moses and the
prophets, Muhammad, and founders of other great religions – all of whom
have called for proper and equitable treatment of all the children of
God. It is time we had the courage to challenge these views and set a
new course that demands equal rights for women and men, girls and boys. At their most
repugnant, the belief that women are inferior human beings in the eyes
of God gives excuses to the brutal husband who beats his wife, the
soldier who rapes a woman, the employer who has a lower pay scale for
women employees, or parents who decide to abort a female embryo. It also
costs many millions of girls and women control over their own bodies
and lives, and continues to deny them fair and equal access to
education, health care, employment, and influence within their own
communities…” President Jimmy Carter …https://kristof.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/12/15/does-religion-oppress-women/  and https://www.cartercenter.org/news/editorials_speeches/parliament-world-religions-120309.html

When society’s leaders convince otherwise good…

When society’s leaders convince otherwise good people…that it is OK to blatantly lie…otherwise good but morally ambivalent people…will feel emboldened…to blatantly lie with a clear conscience…

I find it a little amusing…like a psychiatrist observing a mental patient…when I see the religious saying god wants this, or intends that…knowing that they have nothing but fantasy stories…to back up their delusions…

What is not amusing…is when they try to oppress, persecute or defraud others…based on their fantasy stories…

When you get the chance to vote…separate the religious deluded…from positions of power…before they cause any real damage…

The OT enshrined/hallowed racism/religious tri…

The OT enshrined/hallowed racism/religious tribalism…Hebrew/Jew: good*…Gentile/everyone else in the entire world: worthless
piece of crap…

The NT converted that sentiment into sectarian religious tribalism…My religious sect: good*…Wrong sect/Non-believers:
worthless
piece of crap…

For god so loved the “world”…means…that only our sect is loved of our god…while everyone else is cursed of our god…and worthy of eternal damnation…and the “faith-full” believe that their god is coming any moment now…to destroy everyone not in their sect…while they live for eternity, in bliss in heaven…while their loved ones, children, neighbors, friends, co-workers, helpers and caregivers…not in their sect…are tortured for all eternity…

Which…in a nutshell…is why religious belief is evil…immoral…anti-social…and insane…

* including the obviously evil people…because…forgiveness…
