^ I would not say the church is all child molesters, I was raised in a church going family and none of the clergy ever made any moves on any of the kids, are some like that, sure, but there are plenty of molesters that have no affiliation, the clergy where I went were actually very decent sorts, but they adhere to very outdated explanations of the world, and if I think you are outdated, trust me you are, lol. Before thunder could be explained and the movement of weather patterns etc, things that really mattered thousands of years ago, and still do in less developed areas of the globe, a fairy tale, written with people of the times limited references was the best explanation available. The idea of a god loving us but also willing to damn us forever for using the free will it gave us, that was when the con-men took over, to keep people in line, not work and take from those that could not read. At any time there are 20 odd wars going on, but a being with the capability to do something about it does nothing, children get cancer, get abused and still nothing, it's hogwash. We will most likely never know what started everything, we are not that big a deal, we can't even launch a rocket in a rainstorm. The one thing that could bring about a lack of suffering, is the equal distribution of energy, and therefore food production and education, thus eliminating the need for wars and one group suffering to the point of revolt, is constantly blocked, Tesla, and more we will never know of. The ultra rich can not stay that way without massive suffering of the rest of us. Greed, a human trait is the root of all evil. The religious will say God will punish those that live at the expense of others, but why must we wait for the rich to die at 90 or so while how many generations perish from starvation in that lifetime? God loves us all huh? I call BS. Why does every religion think they are right and every other is heretical? Another human trait, the desire to feel superior to others. We alone have the capacity to advance, or destroy ourselves as a species, NOT the flying spaghetti monster. I used to ask the priests about this, and all you got was "god works in mysterious ways" and "he doesn't give you more than you can handle". You know who also talks in generality's like that? Con men, and people who really don't have an answer but for whom it is so important to have other people believing the same lies they do, as they secretly doubt them themselves. Costanza said it best, "it's not a lie if you believe it", a motto also espoused by our current figurehead.
