Today I wrote about 20 reasons I am godless. I'm sure there are lots more than 20, but it was a good start. Suggestions and refinements to my list are most welcome. :)

Hey DUB... yeah, it's so sad when people, especially women, accept the jackboot of religion and let it keep them oppressed and downtrodden. I heard someone explain why slaves in America took to christianity so easily when they were brought over here. He said it made perfect sense because they were in an intolerable situation that would invariably last the rest of their lives. xianity was perfect for them because it said that they would be rewarded by simply submitting to someone else, Jesus.. which was easy. it gave them hope, even if that hope was for after they died.
Thank you. I really thought about the list and hope to expand on it if I can. I'm sure there are more than 20 good reasons to be godless and religion-free.

As an human it is especially disappointing to me to see such a higher level of religiosity in women for the aforementioned reasons. As an American I feel there is nothing sadder than a black woman who is xian. Except maybe a handicapped black lesbian xian who loves gumbo.

As to the relevant post, well done. I'd have trouble compiling a better list myself.

Yeah, the big three religions are definitely hateful against women. I would add they are hateful against all people, but especially women for the reasons you listed.

Nice list. I would add; Religion is in itself a hate crime against females. Promoting:
*female genital mutilation practiced world wide.
*stoning of girls and women for religious 'honor' violations, including rape and defying a male.
*subjugation of females to the male as a foundational practice.
*female child 'brides', also known as the continuous rape of a child.
*unequal power structure within the church reinforcing a 'lesser than' belief system.
