← How Critical Thinkers Lose Their Faith in God

This is the reason that critical thought and analytical introspection is not and never will be welcomed in any church or mosque in the world.

In fact churches and their equivalents expressly forbid it by a severe lack of encouragement, by lies and blatant bullying and not so subtle innuendo that to undertake such 'dangerous' action automatically condemns the undertaker to hell...or worse!

Unfortunately the brain dead that seem to gravitate towards positions of power reinforce that tactic. Making asinine comments about 'evil little things' just reinforces the 'dangers' of following your own conscience. It was fucking bestial and unforgivable comment from a so called civic leader and it does not get much better with what those neighbourly 'good' xian cretins did, and probably still doing, to Jessica Ahlquist who is a prime example of how to exercise critical thought.
