14. God has become just another propaganda tool for the filthy-rich

The Supremes could never have pushed us back into 1800s laws on women and minorities without a god.

Where would all the crap about the Stinking Nazi being a chosen vessel be without a super daddy in the sky?

Forcing book banning, prayer and female submission back into public issues would have gone nowhere if there wasn't an imaginary misogynistic god supporting it.

So now god is no more than a bludgeoning tool for the filthy-rich to beat up on the masses with. It's used to keep us all buying into a dysfunctional and stagnant economic system. An economic system that topples and crashes whenever a problem comes along. An economic system that causes more problems than it solves.
