From the 2011 archives: Religion vs Social Justice

what’s new is that we’re no longer willing to coddle religious sensibilities

if 9/11 taught us anything, it’s that we can’t afford to pretend that religion has merit or is a force for good in the world

religion is about diving people between the real true believers and everyone who’s lesser

and since all religions claim to be the one true one, and there’s nothing to recommend one over any other

we need to put them all aside in favour of social justice and equality
