Why it is believed that religion is congruous to kindness & morality when many of the most


religious people exhibit characteristics that can be classified as unsympathetic, prejudicial, immoral, & cruel? I have decided to GO THERE. Many times religious people are not exactly kind. They can be downright cruel. How many religious parents believe in physically disciplining a child. How many religious parents disown their children because they do not believe as they do. How many religious people hate others of a different race, belief, or sexual orientation. How many religious people are against the rights of others because those others are beyond their religious/ethical purview.

    It sounds like you are the fortunate exception to the harsh rules imposed by most religions. But I have watched babies die because of their parent's religious beliefs. It doesn't get any worse than that for me.
