Here Is What I Think

Some one on a comment to a news article wrote: “I’d be happy if all organized religion was banned. Christian Crusades… Islamic Jihad….. And it’s said that money is the root of all evil?…I don’t think soooooooooo”

First lets define religion: In order to actually be a religion you need leaders and dogma (set of beliefs). You also need dedicated followers and places of worship. You also need money to support your mission and conversion efforts. Some of this money goes to pay for your ministers and priests. These are all atributes of an organized religion.

Second lets see does secular humanism qualify as a religion? There is plenty of leadership in our government and in state run universities. They have a set of doctrines, which is so thoroughly ground into their followers, that when we attempt to speak against it we are shouted down. If we speak against seperation of church and state as now practiced in America we are more or less told to shut up. Their doctrine of beginnings is a sacred cow to them anyone who dares suggest that it may be a complete fabrication is called a religionists, because we believe in Creation. God help the poor scientist who may have finally seen the light, he or she will be stripped of their degree and banned from the intellectual community (another church). As to money these people are supported by tax dollars where is the doctrine of separation of church in state for this? Why should tax dollars go to support this kind of research? The professors and scientists that work in the private field and in the academic field are the same as paid ministers and priests.

Third, this person “says it’s said that money is the root of all evil?” I can only say this in response to this comment. Money is not the root of all evil. The Bible says that the “love of money is the root of all evil”. Money is just that money it has no power of its own. It derives its power from the user if you love money to the extent that you do evil with it, then that love of money is evil.

Fourth, I conclude that secular humanism is far more dangerous then any organized religion and should be banned from America.
