Indeed. Religion's used as an excuse for everything.
"I only cut that baby from that woman's womb because God told me to! I sware, it was not because I am crazy, but because God told me to!"
Or my personal favorite...
"God hates niggers..."
Yeah, if god loves everything, then how can he hate? Interesting, no?
On a side note, do not take my above quote as a symbol that I am a racist, because I'm not, it's just an observation; that's all.
Also, check my sig for another truth about God.
Oh yes, on the note of racism: We all have some in us, no matter how much we say we're not. To admit it is to control it.
