The problem with religion . . . .

"Religions are drivers of sectarianism, multipliers of conflict, proponents of fossilised ethics and a fear-and-favour, sanction-driven moral authoritarianism. They distort our moral scale, producing harm where there need be none; uniquely divisive because of their great importance and extra-human reference points."
