This is a great quote from Brian Sapient.
I want to add it to my my space list of quotes, but I want to make sure I understood him correctly and not screw it up. (Maybe you're out there lurking and you can let me know.)
"Way of the Master is right. Religion is a force for good, when you take out the murder, mass genocide committed by committed by God as documented in the bible, religious wars, burning witches at the stake, Ted Haggard, shooting abortion doctors, the bible's promotion of slavery, pedophile priests, serial killing Christians gone wild, the church's systematic oppression of women and minorities, a version to protection of STD's and the spread of AIDS in third world countries, creating an inconsistent interpretation of
"thou shall not kill"...take it all out and religion has been a force for good."
