Enquiries on Atheism

How should we treat religions?  Should they be given special permissions, such as tax exemptions?  Should they be permitted to use illegal substances?

I contend that religions, being peddlers of lies- that is that a god exists and that this god created us to be his slaves and is waiting to punish murderers, rapists and politicians for eternity in a future existence, if they don’t repent before their demise- need no special permissions especially tax exemptions.
