Religion is Dangerous
While you might have found peace, solace, god, comfort, or whatever-the-fuck in what you believe, its still probably a good idea to stop shoving it down people's throats. Despite the happiness or guidance it has brought you individually, each and every side of the coin (meaning whatever faith) has not provided world peace, solutions to economic crisis, a broadened sense of civil liberties, greater common decency among man, or protection against man-made environmental catastrophes, but rather violence, schism, alienation, war, justifications for the holocaust, justifications for suicide bombings, justifications for mass suicides, justifications for slavery, and an arrogance toward the environment more despicable than any made-up and fictional devils. In other words, religion seems to be a personal experience that when removed from the individual level and spread across the world causes blood, sadness, and death. Stoking the fire, supposedly sacred experiences would seem much more so sacred if you kept them to yourself.
