Religion Fail

Two brief examples of how religion is destroying humanity:

1. Catholic Church excommunicates doctors and mother for performing/authorizing a life-saving abortion on a 9 year old who became pregnant after being raped by her stepfather. "Life must always be protected" sez the archbishop. Right.

And the stepfather? Well, he had been molesting the girl since she was six, and "he is also suspected of abusing the girl's physically handicapped 14-year-old sister." The stepfather has not been excommunicated himself, and presumably can continue taking communion as long as he continues purchasing an adequate amount of Indulgences.

Does anyone still believe the Catholic Church has provided a net benefit to civilization over the course of its history?

2. I don't watch cable news. This is why:
So here you have Barack Obama going in and spending the money on embryonic stem cell research, and then some, fundamentally changing -- remember, those great progressive doctors are the ones who brought us Eugenics. It was the progressive movement and its science. Let’s put science truly in her place. If evolution is right, why don’t we just help out evolution? That was the idea. And sane people agreed with it! And it was from America. Progressive movement in America. Eugenics. In case you don't know what Eugenics led us to: the Final Solution. A master race! A perfect person. …. The stuff that we are facing is absolutely frightening.
That is Glenn Beck, who has a daily program on -- where else -- Fox News. Let's put aside the fact that stem cell research has nothing at all to do with creating a master race. I don't understand the religious opposition to it. Are the Christians saying that these stem cells have souls? Just like grown ups? Because if not, then what's the problem? But even if they do have souls, then don't those little souls get to skip the whole pain and drudgery of earthly life -- otherwise known as God's Boot Camp -- and go straight to heaven? Because life on earth is intentionally hard and cruel, and its only purpose is to prepare you for (or weed you out from) your heavenly reward. Surely they've not committed any sin that would condemn them to hell. Right? If you look at it that way, then these souls actually benefit from such lucky circumstances. On the other hand, perhaps Christians believe that these souls are condemned to hell, by virtue of never having been baptized. God subjects them to an eternity of fiery torture because they never had water sprinkled on their heads? I can hardly imagine a God who would do such a thing. And certainly that is not a God I would ever consider worshiping.

Dude. These are precisely my arguments against religion. Only more coherently stated and reasonably argued.

I may or may not believe there is a Creator, but I sure as fuck don't believe he/she is what those assholes think he/she is. FAIL.

Yes, as John Cole mentioned today: "For an omnipotent and omniscient being, God has made some really lousy earthly staffing decisions."
