Snippet: Stop Blaming Religion

I’m done blaming religion. It’s not religion that fights to impose a strict, unrealistic, and hopelessly flawed ideology on others. Religion never killed anyone, hurt anyone, honor raped anyone, stoned anyone, lashed anyone, or even slapped the wrist of anyone. If you blame religion, you might as well blame violence on rap or Hollywood or video games. All religion can do is tell a story. It’s religious people who do horrible things.

Belief is not the problem, it’s believers you have to watch out for. Or, to put it in terms religious people might understand: I don’t give a shit about the sin anymore, I hate the sinners.
