Religion is the scourge of the human race. It divides nations in hatred, externally as well as internally. It falsely elevates one group to think that they are superior to all others, have all the answers, deserve everything and therefore have the right to discriminate, abuse and even kill those who are not of the same faith. More wars have been fought in the name of God, than any other reason. Religion has become a burden and a curse to humanity. Everyone standing on the mountain tops screaming, my imaginary deity is more powerful than yours! Yet in many ways, God is perceived as being weak and has no power to defend himself or his laws, and so humans arrogantly set themselves up to do his work for him. When will we wake up from these religious delusions! For the world to be a better place we only need to realize that respecting each others humanity is all that is needed to change the world. In the meantime we can all pray to God "Please protect me from your followers"!!
