So you think only religion does not have a clean record - what an utterly intolerance and also ignorance about what different denominations have done of helping.
Sure some help, so what? Doesn't mean that what they try to sell has anything to do with truth. Because they go out and give sandwitches to the homeless or poor people, doesn't mean that what they profess is right. Using a bunch of money that their donators gave to them to build a hospital means nothing to the effect that what they try to sell as truth is in any way actually true. So I say, so what?
However; on the other hand they try to use their truth that they are selling to impose it on the world which ends in disasterous ways. Demonizing people, killing and murdering them for either not becomming followers or because they are considered blasphemers or worse. So yes religion should be held accountable for how it can cause damage to society.
Atheists don´t have a clean record either all the time, nor do politicians, nor do philosophers, nor do science nor do the medias - the list is endless.
Nothing is just black or white - there are plenty of grey shades in between.
Yep and you should hold everyone and every claim to it's actual merit backed by crediable evidence before accepting it. Doesn't matter who or where it comes from. Religion shouldn't be given an off limits stamp of approval like people suggest that it should.
We should be critical of everything. Nothing should be off limits. No matter what it does that is beneficial. Just because a person helps someone doesn't mean that you should buy their miracle cure and not test it for it's validity.
