Rebuttal to George Galloway's argument for Sapient
George Galloway stated that:
...I'm merely saying that we shouln't be beating up on religion when the problem is not the religion but the behavior of the people who profess to believe in it.
Well that's very true I believe in that.
I'm sorry but I'm going to have to disagree with both of you on that.
Sapient, it appears you have been propagandized too.
What people do in religion's name is not a different argument. People make up the religion, not the other way around!
On the contrary, most religions (especially Judeo-Christian religions) not only honor violence but demands it. To not realize this indicates that you have no knowledge of the Torah, Bible or the Koran, much less the history of these religions.
Religion has fought against science and reason, it has produced unbearable suffering in the world. It's "morality" has not only condoned war and violence, but priests have abused and raped children in both body and mind for centuries. And the horror continues.
His apologetic for religion has no bases in fact and must be countered.
George, you need to wake up and educate yourself!
