I criticise it because it's illogical and detrimental to society as a whole. It encourages scientific illiteracy, blind faith, and opposition to social progress. Making homosexuality illegal in the middle east and parts of Africa, discouraging the use of condoms and subsequently spreading aids in Africa, clashes and wars between christians and muslims, hate crimes against gays worldwide, reduction of women to slaves in parts of the middle east, all of that stuff is caused by religion.
