The few people that read this blog (my wife) know that I am not a religious person. I object to the name Atheist on the grounds that I should not be labeled by what I do not believe: I don't believe in unicorns, or werewolves, or gods, or devils, or fairies, or heaven, or hell, or Oz; or anythings that when you think about it seems blatantly preposterous.
I feel that religion does far more harm than good. The few food pantries and shelters do not balance out the wars, violence, bigotry, ignorance and intolerance that is the hallmark religions in general and Christianity in specific.
On an individual basis religion may be a comfort - a way to deny death; but, on an organized basis it is the bane of civilization.
The only good thing that has come from religion is art and music: religion fantasy had been a creative motivation in every genera from classical, to gospel, to chants, to sacret harp, to country, to blues... And I like most of it.

I would have included some rap by Gangstagrass; but, I didn't want Yellow Dog Granny to stick pencils in her ears.
