metta8 saidReligious Progressives Predicted To Outnumber Conservatives, Survey Finds
I read this today on another site. Nonsense, hate, and vindictive deities, are fading in popularity. Atheism is at all time high. Shunning and pillories are out.
Of course, this makes perfect sense, as science advances, culture matures / evolves.
It's a very good thing that the right wing nuts are becoming less relevant. However, that doesn't mean that folks like the the two boys from Boston, their religion, and their friends, don't present a clear and present danger to us all. They very much do. For those nuts, we all give up personal privacy, and live a bit on edge (much to the love of the military industrial complex / police state).
False belief systems are the root of much evil...in fact, most evil. It's important that we not forget...the Muslims (Boston / New York), The Jimmy Jones, or groups like The Third Reich.
Religion will continue to present a danger well through our lifetimes.
