"If you belonged to a political party or a social club that was tied to as much bigotry, misogyny, violence and sheer ignorance as religion is, you'd resign in protest. To do otherwise is to be an enabler, a mafia wife for the true devils of extremism that draw their legitimacy from the millions of their fellow followers." -- Bill Maher

Please look at the photo of the Boston Marathon atrocities in the previous post (Islam). I could have labeled that post "theism" because all theists are responsible for what happened that terrible day. All theists believe in the same magical being those terrorists believe in. All theists are part of the problem. All theists are what Mr. Maher calls "enablers". They all help make religious violence possible.

The never ending violence is only part of the problem. There is the suppression of human rights (especially women's rights), the inability of religious assholes to mind their own fucking business, the stupidity, the brainwashing, their war against science education, and their war against human progress.

Do you think you're a moderate theist? What is so fucking moderate about believing there's a magical being hiding in some other galaxy? Your god fairy fantasy is the most anti-science and most anti-reality idea ever invented. And your god bullshit is what made that Boston photo possible.

In the photo there is a very young woman wearing a blue shirt. Both her legs are completely gone, including the feet, the knees, and her entire thighs. Blood is pouring out of both stumps. A first responder is checking her neck to see if she's still alive. She is either dead or her life is completely ruined.

This horrible photo is what religion is all about. The violence, the stupidity, the bullshit fantasies, it's all there in the photo and every theist is responsible for it.

All this for what? So you fucking cowardly theists can have your magical being and your magical heaven and all your other magical bullshit. You fucking assholes don't care about the violence and the other stuff. You just want to be able to deny reality because you're too fucking stupid to grow up and because reality makes you cry.

If you're a theist (or an equally retarded agnostic) then get off my planet you worthless piece of crap.

From a Letter to the Editor in today's January 31, 2014 New York Times at How We View and Experience Faith:

A secular person is much more likely to feel anger or frustration not because of what the fundamentalist religious person believes, but because of what religious beliefs drive that person to do. Suicide bombings, denying civil rights, exporting fear and loathing to other countries, bombing abortion clinics, “honor killings,” elimination of accurate science in education — these are examples of toxic behaviors with broad impact that have been justified by religious faith.
