Yes I really believe in religion.
No I conform belief in religion for socioeconomic advantages
Not all religious groups are good. Some are extremely judgmental and damaging to their members.
Others are good. Just depends.
But non-religious groups usually lack the extremes of judgmentality, which I think is a good thing -- it makes things less of a guessing game.
Religious people also join non-religious groups with people of diverse beliefs or non-beliefs.
There might very well be "good ole' boy networks" of sorts in place in a few very insular religious communities, but I've certainly never taken advantage of any such thing, nor has anyone in my family.
Who is saying nonreligious women are ugly? All I'm saying and have been saying is that the better looking women are usually on the mainstream sociocultural grapevine. They aren't running around in their twenties as avowed atheists. It just is what it is. The women who are secular in their twenties aren't generally ones you'd much want to be with. That's just life.
I don't view as a male going for the most socioeconomically connected, best looking women (which in America happens to mean Christian) as "conning" women.
