    They're not going to get rid of the guns and frankly, the church is failing so miserably these days, I don't expect to see it remain a force for much of anything, except child molestation, for much longer.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Like what? Tell me one demonstrably true thing that religion can do that cannot be done just as well or better through secularism.

    More than literally anything else in the human experience, that's what religion is... the belief that your's is right and that all the others are wrong. Otherwaise, what's the point?

    Goes for non-beliefs as well.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Nor does pretending hate doesn't already exist and doing everything in your power to stop it. You'd rather just be lazy.

    Have you never heard of hospitals, schools, food programs, etc... supported by churches? I'm not a religious person, but your disdain is inexplicable...

    Telling the truth is not an insult, even if someone feels insulted by it. Try again.
