Why Religion is Evil: Ruining the Youth

Over the years I have become less and less tolerant of organized religion, not the people who are in the church, but the institutions them selves.

These institutions are tolerant of intolerance. 
In Gainesville FL a church Hung Obama In Effigy, in Westboro there is a church that protest funerals, and there are many more cases that I can be added to a list. However, today I want to talk about a church in Indiana.

The Apostolic Truth Tabernacle in Greensburg, Indiana, had young congregant sing "Ain't No Homos Gonna Make It to Heaven"

Yes, they are teach homophobia to the youngest of the congregation. Religion is nothing more than an excuse for being intolerant.

Well John, the problem is in the people not religion.

I would disagree with the first comment, as there is indeed a problem with a religion that preaches hatred. And many religions do teach hatred , sometimes they try to dress it up pretty, "hate the sin not the sinner" sometimes they don't like the westboro lot.

I have a good, kind friend who almost goes into shock at the thought of gay marriages. I simply cannot understand why his beliefs must be the only beliefs. I hate organised religion.

Organized religions also provide a way to not be responsible for one's actions.
