I hate religion. I make no bones about it in real life, and I will make no bones about it here. I despise ALL organized religion. Religion has done nothing positive for humanity that secularism couldn’t have done. In fact, religion has done nothing but hurt society, primarily by hurting women. The whole Sharron Angle thing is the straw that broke the back of politeness for me.
This religious wing-nut has basically said that a little girl who gets pregnant by rape should make lemons out of lemonade. In other words, no abortion for her because "God has a plan." Well guess fucking what Angle, there is NO SUCH THING AS GOD! He is imaginary, just like unicorns, Santa and the Tooth Fairy. He is in your head! Since he is in your head, you need to keep His/your "plans" the fuck off my body. I am so sick of the rights of women and gays, hellany minority group, being trampled on by the religious right.
Religion is what drives people to do the most cruel and inhumane things (see e.g. the Spanish Inquisition, the Crusades, the civil war in Ireland, 9/11, the list goes on); which is the complete opposite of what they claim to be doing! All the protesters outside my clinic are religious. They use this imaginary friend as an excuse to harass and yell at women who just want to be left alone. Here is a good rule to follow if you are religious: keep your hands to yourself! I don’t want to hear you preaching, I don’t want you imposing your moral code on my body, I want to be left alone!

Religion demonizes sex, women, homosexuals, other religions; really anything or anybody that doesn’t conform to each particular religion’s nonsense. In the 21st century, women are still banned from important roles in most churches. In 2010, people are using myths to justify denying women equality and it has got to end.
In conclusion, if you believe in God, go and read Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion. Get rid of your imaginary friend and grow up. Atheism is the new enlightenment. In the future, we are going to look back on this period of religiosity the same way we look back on slavery. If you want a list of some excellent atheist blogs, take a look at my list. Try and start from the position that there is no such thing as God, then search for proof that He exists, rather than telling atheists to disprove God. We can’t disprove something that has no proof to support it in the first place!
I feel much better after getting that anger off my chest. If you are offended, please refer to my first post for a disclaimer with respect to my atheism.
