  • Congratulations especially to Lauren Markoe
    at RELIGION NEWS SERVICE for winning her well-deserved award.
    RNS is the best place for religion news, if you ask me.

    However,
    The URGENT unheralded story in Religion
    is the damage religious thinking is doing to cultures around the world.
    As long as these stories are seen only from the perspective of ‘the faithful’ we will lose sight of the problem.

    Look at the chaos Religion is causing around the globe:

    1. Horrific religious governance in Middle Eastern and African countries is leading to depravity, despair and hopelessness creating a mass migration larger than anything seen in recorded history.

    2. Religious decrees are destroying women’s rights globally – leading to overpopulation and unsustainable consumption of resources.

    3. Religious funding of elections is subverting the democratic process.

    Let’s hear more about Religion’s victims.

  • Of all the daring things which Jesus did in connection with his earth career, the most amazing was his sudden announcement on the evening of January 16: “On the morrow we will set apart ten women for the ministering work of the kingdom.”

    I’m reminded again here of my favorite blog quote about religion:

    “Religion is for the ignorant, the gullible, the cowardly, and the stupid, and for those who would profit from them.”
