who’s in charge of the asylum?

People are willing to do the most appalling things to another person for the sake of imposing a religious belief.

The post below is so absurd it needs no more commentary from me.

    Well, at least the guy identifies himself instead of hiding behind anonymity. (like the fella of Biblical Gender Roles)
    However, it’s still rather amazing how many people, with god(s) on their side, can dictate how others live their lives. I have found, in REAL life, that telling others what to do/what not to do usually backfires spectacularly. 🙂

    Makagutu, your title is very fitting.
    After I read and re-read the piece, the word ‘nincompoop’ popped into my head.
    In my humble opinion, the world would be a much peaceful place if people became more critical of religion, and less trusting of its doctrines.

    I think the biggest attraction to religion is, they are all in charge of their own little asylum. Male dominance in religion makes each man a king unto his own little kingdom. Having the reins, and the whip, is bad medicine in the hands of the wrong people.

    They like their little power trip so much, they are impervious to the abundant evidence that religions are a load of bovine squirt, and work diligently to obfuscate realitiy in favor of the delusion.

    So says SD Freud.

  4. Wow. Just, Wow! Idjitry in it’s finest form. I can think of no other idea of a hell, if one existed, than to spend eternity in the same place as people like this dude. Wow. That post will turn any reasonable person into an atheist.

    Oh dear. I struggled with this issue mightily when I married my sorta-catholic husband, who does not believe in organized religion. For all practical purposed we were unequally yoked because I was very devout and brainwashed.

    Atheists have asked me, “did you really believe in all that dogma?” I’m horrified to say I did. Such is the harm of indoctrination. I feel lucky to have managed a painful extraction from it, and look back in utter disbelief at what I swallowed. What is more horrifying is that the poster who wrote this truly sees nothing wrong with his position (as did I, when I was puppet). It makes me rather nauseous.

      It has never occurred to me that a difference in where we go to church should come between us. I sympathise with a guy like this who without his bible is lost in the world
