Imagine no religion... Billboards cause a stir.

There is a fair amount of animosity towards religion in some largely secular societies. Can we really blame people when religion seems to bring out the worst in so many of us - when religion fuels hatred among peoples, when people use their faith to persecute others, when religion is used as an excuse for bigotry?

Of course these persons (radical fundamentalists and crackpots) are just a minority of bad examples among what is generally a truly sincere, loving, caring, group of people. I am of the mind that religion has done so much to bring about moral regeneration, help and care for the least, a place of love and acceptance for the most despised, and unity and hope in situations of hopelessness and struggle! That speaks of who Jesus is! How I wish we could be more like Jesus, and less like ourselves!

However, the vocal minority do seem to win out over the less vocal, and faithful, majority. Well, a group of people have decided that enough is enough! So, they've made their campaign against religion public.

You can read about the news story here.

I don't know about you, but I want to let my actions of love speak louder than the words of judgment and rejection by others!


  • Imagine no religion!

    That's exactly what Enver Hoxha did. And worked for 27 years to make his dream a reality.

    You don't have to imagine it, you just have to look at the history books.
