← Religion as "comfort" to people in distress: fact or myth?

CJHefford's Avatar Jump to comment 2 by CJHefford

I am constantly stunned by the arrogance of the religious to give advice that they are not qualified to give, to encourage the suffering of other human beings through their misguided religious teachings and their ability to turn a blind eye when it suits them.

I consider myself to be open minded but the more I read about religion failing people in incomprehensible ways the more I believe it is a blight on the human race.

I will gladly face the Christian wrath of burning in hell, because to fear it I would have to believe in it. I'll only believe in it when I am shown evidence of it.
