"Many thinking religious people say anyways that they don't know if God exists, although they may suspend their nonbelief while they're in church or praying, similarly to how people suspend their disbelief while watching a movie. They avoid mentioning their nonbelief around other religious people. And many other people go along with the forms of religion without believing it at any time.
But getting a religious person to that point, seems like a success. It should take away the belief that there's a divine warrant for the proper role of women or the wrongness of being gay. Religious people who understand that they don't really know if God exists, are probably less likely to be oppressive."
