Catholic Parishioners Burn Rainbow Flag In 'Exorcism' Ceremony

<< < (5/5)

One could believe that eating that apple in the Garden of Eden would have resulted in better human behavior. One could also postulate that religion was suppose to domesticate people, but it failed over and over again. Religion brings out the best and worse in mankind.

Thank goodness for the Age of Reason and the Scientific Method. Religion is not needed to be kind to people.

  I don't know why, but I am getting a lot of suggestions on YouTube to view the traditional conservative (In the Catholic faith) posters on this same subject. Some are calling for the Pope to resign. Not only are they going after the LGBT groups but the Protestants as well. This is the US and I am not used to this rhetoric! I grew up respecting the people of other faiths and going to school with them. We even visited each other's churches. Now the Prosperity Gospel people are getting more into the act. We don't want a holy war here.

Constitutionally, we're supposed to have separation of church and state. Now, with people being given the right to hate and discriminate based on religious ideology, we are just beginning to see what is to come here. Holy wars are still being fought in other regions of the world, and they are due to come to America soon enough. The burning of the rainbow flag is nothing compared to the mass genocides that have occurred elsewhere.
No matter how much technology humans develop, we are still a primitive specie. Proof is in the daily news reports.
