7. Really? "Religious Freedom"?!? I'm not buying it.

Since when is it "freedom" to give a powerful group like the Catholic Church the "freedom" to prevent people who have grown up in its fold basic human rights, such as controlling reproduction? Heck, or just easing the suffering of severe menstrual cycles for that matter. Or all the other things that 'birth control' pills do besides birth control.

I've been an atheist for over a decade. In that time, I've never felt the desire to stamp out religion. That is, until the last year or so.

It's very difficult to watch: these peddlers of falsehoods spread misery. Then they bitch and moan about how oppressed they are when the expected backlash occurs. Then they use that backlash to further reinforce their "the world is evil and against us" paradigm that every other cult has used since the dawn of time. It's such a classic line of every cult; why do people not see through it? It's so transparent.
