With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion. - Steven Weinberg
If there's a bigger bunch of thieves out there in the world than the godbags, I can't figure out who. Since the first shaman conned a tribe into buying into the angry gods idea and suckered power and money out of folks all the way up through the Catholic Church's Papal power madness of the dark ages through Rick Warren's slimy book sales and church tithes, it's been about money and power.
I find the Abrahamic godbags the worst of all, from Islam to Mormonism, they're all about keeping women under control and getting the menfolk to be scared enough to kill for their mean manly gods.
And Steven Weinberg's right about good people doing evil things in the name of god, brainwashed into doing things by propaganda and the need to feel righteous.
Even Spidey's been hijacked by the godbags to push fairy tales, it seems.
