Sorry for stepping on your toes here but. Are you out of your mind?! If you ask me, religion makes a mind strong and gives a person who sees they have no purpose in life a purpose. It gives hope to those that have none, and it brings people together.

I have common sense and decency. You clearly lack respect for other people's beliefs. If you ask me, atheists are the weak minded. 80% of all suicides in the world are done by people who don't have a religion.

Religion tells us that there is always hope and where there's a will there's a way. There's always a silver lining, and people are better off with it than without it if you ask me. It separates people? Sorry if I am wrong about this but... What separation has it caused? Sure Muslims and Christians hate eachother. But not all do. I have quite a few muslim friends who don't follow the laws in the Qur'an that talk about killing for the sake of Alla because our society today doesn't permit it.

My aunt is a Buddhist. And the rest of my family is Dutch Reformed.

We're all very strong people. So yeah, saying religion is for the weak minded is calling nearly half or more than half of the Earth's population weak minded.

Lol I can guarantee that suicide thing is bs. Sounds like something a right wing blogger would say.

I agree with you on religion giving people hope though I think that's why religious beliefs are stronger and more relevant in poorer and more violent parts of the world where people really need hope. But you can't ignore the amount of wart and injustice and terror caused in the name of religions either because its so easy to justify being a horrible person if you can convince yourself its what god wants
