← Religion is 'the new social evil'

If religion can be argued as being another form of tribalism, and who could possibly argue otherwise, how could it not be considered detrimental to the upward progress of societies.

According to the New York Times today, Pope Rat was getting a great reception, but at the same time the catholic tribe was under great pressure from forces of pentacostalism in the US. I'm not sure which is worse; the tribe blinded by pomp, or the tribe blinded by hysteria. Plenty of different tribes to choose from so the simple people can feel they belong.
