ramases, how does holding the view that religion poisons everything indicate my advocating religious totalitarianism? i take it that just because i've oppose your position, and pointed out its flaws this makes me an advocate of totalitarianism. fine, if that's the spin you want to put on it. but where have i seen such spin before? oh yes, in religious apologists.

Net, the view that religion poisons everything has nothing to do with it. That is a position which with I largely agree. Religion is bullshit, and we would be better off without it.

The point Condell is making, and which you are defending, is that Muslims should not have a right to build a mosque near the 9/11 site. In other words for banning it.

Banning beliefs you don't like or agree with is a formula for an awful society. It is also anti-secular, and against the fundamentals of human freedom.
