Bob Richards replied to Loren Miller's discussion What religion has contributed to the world this month - Episode 9 (July-August 2013)
"Don't take it personally, I am not judging you, only the video. If I were a christian all I would have to point out is the fact that the U.S. military hides, obfuscates, and denies sexual abuse as strongly as the catholic church does.  I…"

"Hi: If a piece of agitprop is to have effect, it must not exaggerate to the point where opponents can pick it apart in any way. I agree with you about the Catholic church. However, the video I am questioning did not reference the catholic church.…"

Bob Richards replied to Loren Miller's discussion What religion has contributed to the world this month - Episode 9 (July-August 2013)
"I found the first half of that video compelling. It indeed shows a direct correlation between religion and human rights abuses. The second half of that video, undermines the entire work. It attempts to correlate sexual abuse and pedophilia with…"

Bob Richards replied to David's discussion Conducting a simple atheist study, need un minuto of your time.
