We certainly don't need religion, but there isn't anything wrong with having one, well, so long as you're not an extremist (like those suicide bombers) or a preacher. As for whether or not it's a way of controlling people, looking at the bible (not just the old testament), it would look like it is. I mean seriously, Jesus said that men should tear their eyes out if they are making them have feelings for other women (not their wife) and that if they didn't, even if they did not commit adultery, they would burn in hell. Now that is somthing (in the new testament as well) that is quite simply disgusting, and domineering.

We kill people who kill people to show others that killing is wrong.
