23421, This is childish...

...it's obvious that religion can be as restrictive and oppressive as any Communist dictatorship. And while I agree with your points about organized religion being something that helps control a large mass of people, I also find it quite inflammatory and simple-minded to simply say religion is wack. Plenty of people get plenty of different things from whatever religion they practice. In general they provide a loose moral center for most of the world, and while the rules and regulations that are associated with any religion might seem stupid, myopically traditional, or outright contrary to scientific evidence they obviously provide something of worth to the people that follow them. And like old boy said stating religion is wack but then championing Taoism because it's something you practice is about as childish as it gets.

And you gots no respect for me, is that right?
