Why Do I Despise Religion?

It is only good for separating and dividing people, and  planting seeds of ‘I am better that you’  Bertrand Russell hits the nail on the head about Religion:

“‘Religion is based…mainly upon fear…fear of the mysterious, fear of defeat, fear of death. Fear is the parent of cruelty, and therefore it is no wonder if cruelty and religion have gone hand in hand…. My own view on religion is that of Lucretius. I regard it as a disease born of fear and as a source of untold misery to the human race.'”
