Control by an essentially smaller or weaker force over a larger one by means of fear.
    Religion is all about Control dude! So they go hand in hand.

    You'd think that, but...I'm a walking example of the contrary. I'm very religious and very much free. mainstream religion maybe, but not all religion, certainly not all sects of religion either.

    You made a sweeping generalization about the Christian religion which is in fact not true. I don't need to bring anything new.

    The Bible pretty much spells out to forgive and not kill for conversion, pretty simple.
    If the OT does not apply to Christians in any way then why is it even in the Bible?

    The OT very much does apply to them considering that it is the basis of that religion. lol.

    I'm not sure that our views changed in response to Bush being president. It could have just been that so many people were killed while he happened to be in office, and we got a more graphic look at what terrorism entails on a really personal level.

    For people who do research and don't believe propaganda, the views didn't change. For those that listen to everything they hear on the Infotainment shows and love a good scapegoat, their views changed a lot.

    Perhaps organized religion is, but I don't think the general concept of
    "religion" is about control.

    Who do you think the original Christians were?
    You Protestants are Johnny-come-lately's.
    I am a Catholic actually. That is Catholic doctrine I was giving you.

    You are one who has not allowed Dogma to overtake your freedom. Kudos

    But isn't the basis of most religions about control in some ways? Even some alt. religions have a somewhat control vibe?

    Mankind really messed up religion as a whole.
