Religion Is the Issue

The meme was found on the Facebook page “The Other 98%” from August 21, 2015.

This appeals to our heart’s wishes; we want to solve these problems, but over-simplification won’t work. Here we have extremely simplistic thinking that keeps us in this mire. It’s pervasive and it’s the main obstacle to solving these problems and many like them. Introspection must be a priority. My book, After the Clear Signs and this blog provide a narrative for the necessary introspection and deep examination of religion and related indoctrinated thinking which is the main source for these problems. This topic requires plenty of discussion. Inevitably we’re going to realize the truth behind the subtitle for Christopher Hitchens’s god is not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything.

Religion is the issue we must be willing to discuss in order to solve the problems of hunger, endless killing, homelessness, and the corrupt medical industry.
