Horrible story here about Muslim fundamentalists in Bangladesh calling for the execution of three atheist bloggers. My anger-filled thoughts today are inspired by both this event and the crap my kids get at school for being atheist in this ‘wonderful’ Christian nation:
- Religion plays on guilt to shut down dialogue and human rights.
- Religion allows you to feel self-righteous when looking down on those unlike yourself.
Since religion plays on such deep, scary taboo parts of the brain and can be so manipulative, why not forswear it. Feel what you will, but stop using God talk! Look what it does.
