Cults of Intolerance

I’ve been sitting on this one for a little while because I didn’t really know how to begin. This religion-influenced ignorance burns me the fuck up. Organized religions are nothing more than cults of hate and intolerance. All organized religions.
“But, Bill,” you might argue, “Religious people are good people. Don’t single out the extremists as the norm.”
“No,” I reply, “Religious people are not good people. They are hateful, intolerant people and consistently use their holy books as an excuse to spread their own ignorance, hate and intolerance. That is their norm. There are no religious people who are good, however, there are good people who are also religious. There is a big difference.”
