A religion is an organized collection of beliefs, cultural systems, and world views that relate humanity to an order of existence. Many religions have narratives, symbols, and sacred histories that aim to explain the meaning of life and/or to explain the origin of life or the Universe. From their beliefs about the cosmos and human nature, people may derive morality, ethics, religious laws or a preferred lifestyle.

Many religions may have organized behaviors, clergy, a definition of what constitutes adherence or membership, holy places, and scriptures. The practice of a religion may include rituals, sermons, commemoration or veneration (of a deity, gods or goddesses), sacrifices, festivals, feasts, trance, initiations, funerary services, matrimonial services, meditation, prayer, music, art, dance, public service or other aspects of human culture. Religions may also contain mythology

But don't for a moment pretend that this is where Christianity and Islam diverge.

Many Christians think the "gays had it coming," that this cold-blooded massacre was part of God's plan.

Every single person who has fought against gay rights and gay marriage has contributed to this, from the US to the Middle East.

And to all those in my home country who want to retain the status quo of criminalizing gay sex - you have blood on your hands.

I do not see how one can revile Christianity for homophobia and misogyny (though rightly so) without recognizing that these elements are present also in Islam, but a thousand times more severe.

Our fight is not only against the toothless bumpkins and mental midgets of modern Christendom, but all Abrahamic religion. It is a twisted tree with rotten roots, and it has produced famously poisonous fruit.

I wish for everyone to glimpse the true face of the enemy: that three-headed serpent of Abrahamic religion, the madness of one bitter old man made contagious, that every generation after him might suffer. It is made easier every time the shiny, happy mask that they wear slips.

Until then our efforts to stop them will be scattered and effete, because we fight only the symptoms and not the root cause. The nature of a hydra is that cutting off only one of the heads accomplishes nothing but to make it sprout five more. It is the body they sprout from which must be destroyed.

A 21-year-old woman is now pushing to make it illegal for parents to reject medical treatment for their children based on their religious beliefs after her parents refused to treat her congenital heart condition and instead opted for “faith healing.” Mariah Walton was born with a hole in her heart, and although the condition could have been fixed at birth, it's no longer treatable, and threatens her life. 

Walton left home two years ago and says she would like to see her parents prosecuted for what “they deserve” after allowing her to end up in this condition, The Guardian reported. 

Walton was born with a congenital heart disease that caused a small hole to form in her most vital organ. The hole could have been closed during Walton’s infancy, and even treated later on in her childhood, but now the damage has become irreversible. Her parents, fundamentalist Mormons, refused to give their young daughter medical care. Instead they insisted that prayer and natural remedies such as herbs and essential oils would be enough to cure her and “drive the evil spirits away,” The Independent reported.

Now, at 21, Walton explains that she is permanently disabled and her life is painful. In addition, the once fixable hole now threatens to kill her. Although it is legal in her home state of Idaho for parents to refuse medical treatment for their children due to religious beliefs, Walton and her nine other siblings are pushing to make this a punishable offense.

Not all of the various belief systems are the same. Some are more difficult to free yourself from than others for a multitude of reasons. Atheist Ex Muslims are some of the bravest people in the world and the best hope for a better future. Kudos to all of you and much love :-)

Keeps believers sedated, so they don't have to make any sincere effort towards real solutions.

Something bad happens, pray it out of your system, then ignore the situation until you find a new reason to pray...

Rinse and repeat.

I don't get it. God is sitting on the table in the hall-- except when he's been bad. Then he sits in the fireplace next to a can of lighter fluid and a box of matches. My relationship with God is, well, complicated.
