Atheist
About Me:
I lived under Apartheid and I lived blissfully ignorant. I lived under Catholicism and I lived blissfully ignorant. I see these two things as the same in that they promote ignorance, the decline of free thinking and censorship.

There exist today, people who honestly believe that we were better off under Apartheid and that freedom should be granted to white people only because the rest of us are too stupid or corrupt to know how to best use it. This reminds me so much of religion which preaches that people can't think for themselves and they need religion to tell them wrong from right.

Most religious brands claim that they are the only group of people who know "the truth" and every other religion is false. I refuse to live blissfully under ignorance any more.

I grow tired of this never ending battle. NO wonder Hitchens smoked and drank so much. Talking to the religious is a battle you cannot win.
The religion you left
Christian
