  • Samuel Quo Vadis One must distinguish between the religion and man made laws. For example, in Saudi Arabia it is illegal for women to drive. No where in the Quran is there any prohibition against women driving. In other Muslim nations women are not prohibited from driving. This is a Saudi cultural prohibition and not one instituted by religion.

    Almighty Allah says: (Quran 4:15) ” If any of your women are guilty of lewdness, Take the evidence of four (reliable) witnesses from amongst you against them; and if they testify, confine them to houses until death do claim them, or Allah ordain for them some (other) way.” (Quran 24:4) “And those wh…

  •  men invent the laws and the religion.
  • Samuel Quo Vadis If religion is evil why aren’t Christians stoning to death adulterers? Throughout history people have selectively chosen to follow some rules and guidelines of their religion and they have ignored others. This is because people do good and do evil. People have free will and they make choices. No one does anything because a book forced them to.

    The reason we make so little progress against violence, oppression and injustice in the world is because people keep focusing on religion as the culprit when we need to be focusing on people and human nature and the conditions that create fertile ground for violence, oppression, injustice and the adoption of beliefs that spread these vices. Don’t put the cart before the horse. There was evil before there was religion. There was good before there was religion. Ridding the world of religion will not rid the world of evil. At best you’re attacking a symptom…which means we will always remain sick.

  •  All Religion/cults and hate for women is man made.
  • Sam religion is evil. it’s why I lost my civil rights in the 90s and had to wait until 2004 to have them back
  •  and other people’s religion is why I am agoraphobic now.

  •  religion is an invention for social control and power. that is it. money for nothing and your altar boys for free.

    Stephen Tighe yeah, ted cruz’s father for one. but it’s still a minority. a very loud one. they do manage to pass discriminatory laws at the state and local levels, but those usually get struck down.

    Samuel Quo Vadis And until we recognize that people are the problem and the observance of religious decrees is simply a manifestation of the problem…the rights of gays (and most everyone else) will continue to be threatened. The capacity of the Catholic and Protestant churches to oppress and persecute people was greatly reduced because political, economic and social conditions changed…and these changes were brought about by people. The negative conditions arising in the U.S. are not due to religion…religion existed during the time when conditions were improving, too…they are due to political, economic and social changes created by people.

    Atheistic states, like the Soviet Union and the Eastern Bloc countries, were also homophobic, oppressive and persecutory. So anyone who believes if we just get rid of religion and everyone becomes an atheist we will be living in a paradise of freedom with respect for all human rights is just dreaming.

    Bettina Wolff It’s a stepping stone … At least a start.

    Stephen Tighe humans are gullible and credulous. the big problem with religious decrees is that, to believers, they are from some divine, higher than human source, and aren’t open to human criticisms. funadmentalist christians are just as insistent that the bible is the literal and unalterable word of god. the difference is that the western christian countries have secular laws and institutions.

    Nina K Tryggvason humans are easily corrupted. we no longer operate on an “I’m okay you’re okay” basis. not even “me instead of you”. somehow (religion) we are at “me at the expense of you”

    “western christian countries have secular laws and institutions” is an oxymoron

    secular countries do not have state religions

    nor are their laws derived from religion
