← Moral compass: a guide to religious freedom

Religion helps people feel things they normally couldn't gasp at all. We all know how idiotic believers in religious superstitions actually are, but what I don't think we realize often enough is their lack of emotional intelligence. You often hear of religious people acting in a cruel way, but don't understand why. They are, after all, doing what their god told them to do.

I do however believe that more strict guidelines deserves to be placed on religions, so they don't interfere with the rest of society. Athiesm is growing so fast that we should respect them in the same way as people in English speaking countries respect Christianity. (I will remain forceful about that statement.)
