Whatever your criteria for hating religion, you also have to hate money for it has the same characteristics as religion, namely:
- created by man
- different from culture to culture, both in currency and perspective
- a cause of (most?) wars
- a cause of intellectual blindness
The Bible covers the bases (which is, incidentally, what you’d expect from God). The Bible says, “If I have all wisdom and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, yet don’t have love, I will sound like a gong or cymbal”… which is what the YouTube dude and Richard Dawkins sound like: the same sound over and over and over. There is certainly intelligence in their words, but they become wearisome to listen to.
Religion is not the problem anymore than food is the problem. People are always, only the problem. To curse Religion is to miss the point and to demonstrate a lack of understanding or enlightenment.
Religion is the problem. Jesus was not, and is not, religious. Even the devout know this, though they don’t understand it. Religiousness is always a symptom of un-enlightenment.
