my dear ramases, i disagree with all religions. as a great man once said, "religion poisons everything". if you think i am pitting islam with christianity, then, again, you've got it wrong. and, furthermore, it's not a question of whether or not i "like" beliefs, as you put it. it am against the influence of anything faith-based on those of us who hold different views.

and jhellegers, you're welcome.

Well Net, thanks for making that clear!

So you would ban churches as well!

How incredibly even handed!

I would still like to hear some details of the mechanisms you would use to do this. A special branch of the police perhaps?

Have you ever heard, "I disagree with what you are saying, but I will defend to the utmost your right to say it"?

The test of a free society, and of an individual's commitment to freedom, is not the extent they advocate for their own freedoms. Commitment to freedom is measured in the extent to which advocate for the freedom of others - of people they disagree with.

It is a test you have pretty spectacularly failed. So has Condell.
