I have heard the argument before…Religion is good for the world. They promote peace…What a crock of shit…I guess that these two competing religions forgot the peace and brotherly love!, and started beating the crap out of each other.
A recent story on the globe and mail site caught my eye. It looks like church attendance is down, and those poor religions don’t have enough money to fix their huge ass buildings. Ah. Isn’t that sad? No it is not, for those not so sure how to answer the question. Hand over your tax free land to house the real needy with social housing, and go rent a gym on Sunday. Or better yet, pick names out of a hat, and have it at Betty Ann Christian’s house this weekend…
**EDIT** – I wrote this post just before the Pakistan Opposition Leader Benazir Bhutto got assassinated. Proof once again that religion makes people crazy. A sad day in history.
Some people are investigating claims that the CIA started the current Iraq war. Here is a documentary that goes into this claim in great detail.
