Yeah .... it's kinda hard for me to put the blame "religion" .... before I put it on the HUMAN BEING factor that corrupts it!! Simply introducing Christianity to our slave ancestors may not have been such a bad thing ... but using abuse, torture and death to force the acceptance of it ... on people who already had/practiced their own form of "religion" is what makes our unwavering adherence to it all the more disgusting and inhumane, IMO.

Ummmm ... well, actually, I see it kind of differently, Sunnubian ... I don't see "religion" in and of itself, being anything necessarily bad. Pretty much all the religions that I have any personal knowledge of tend to have the same basic fundamental tenants: 1) There is a "God"/"Supreme Being" that it's centered around; 2) it has a set of "rules"/"laws" that govern it; and 3) there is some directive to somehow acknowledge/worship/show reverence to that "God"/"Supreme Being" in some way.
