Yes religion is the root of ALL evil. Not money or power. It's a HUGE problem.
If believing in God gives an old lady comfort in her old age, or helps a struggling family make it through the tough times, or keeps an otherwise good kid from committing a crime, then what the hell is so bad? See, your angry because you perceive that Christians want to convert you, when in reality, conversion can only truly happen if it is in your heart to begin with. And, believe it or not, Christians are not all milling around figuring new ways to upset you.
You ought to leave them alone, and they'll leave you alone....Doubt you can though.
True Catholic pulls out early.
‘This is not peace, it is an armistice for 20 years.’ (Ferdinand Foch. After the Treaty of Versailles, 1919).
Well, I hope to still be alive in thirty years. But I'll tell ya, you present yourself here as a 'liberal' from Europe, which would put you probably further left than anyone, including American liberals. Tell me, how that path worked out for Europe? Not so well in the modern world eh?
Aw, what's the matter? someone throw out a stupid comment about someone else, and now when directly confronted with it, doesn't have anything left to say? .... Yeah, go sit down.Figure it out for yourself.
