Religion Is Intrinsically Evil?


The evil suggestion that religion is intrinsically evil again shows itself to be abstract, ivory tower atheistic nonsense in today's CNN report "Sister Gives Hopes to Trafficked Migrants."

A note: I remember meeting with one of our local atheist leaders who proceeded to argue with me that religion is evil. (I've always found atheistic talk about "evil" interesting...) After our discussion I asked him if he wanted to help do something about the systemic evil of poverty and hunger in our community. "We have begun a soup kitchen that feeds 100+ every night here in Monroe. I would love to have you serve with me."

He declined.
