@argome321,
religion can be bad but believing in something higher then yourself can be good. When you believed you don't have to answer to anyone you live your life like your don't have to answer to anyone.

@Bettafin,
That is nonsense, a lot of atheists are extremely moral, deliberately so. And they don't have some musty old tome telling them to hate homosexuals and treat women as second class citizens.

@izzythepush,
They can't see their own hate. Like my Christian sister says, she loves the homosexual, but hates the act. Why is she so concerned about how other people love? Why is she the judge of other people's love?

@cicerone imposter,
Let's face it, there's plenty of heterosexual couplings that would turn one's stomach, but we don't focus on that.

@izzythepush,
I don't focus my attention on other people's sex lives. No interest.

Without any false religion, yes, absolutely.

Soon that will be a reality. (Isaiah 11:9)

@Auldbuzzard,
"God" is a very complex idea deeply misunderstood even by the best minds we have around. God symbolizes UNITY in Reality through Rationality.(from Ratio, not appealing to thought, just mathematical Rationality) In turn, Rationality implies and requires interaction, interdependence, relationship, which can loosely be equated with connection or "Love". Hence why "God" is "Love". The most abstract form of it.
Needless to say, the simple-minded version of "God" is outrageously childish.

Why would it matter?
If you are dying of thirst in a desert, are you going to refuse water until your benefactor tells you where they're from?

Yes, they may have poisoned the water. Or it might give you dysentery.

Yeah, I'd hate to have dysentery on top of dying of dehydration.

@Leadfoot,
You see, that's the thing, I am nothing but forced.
If you could actually say something remotely interesting about "God" we might have had a nice talk...the problem is ya don't know the guy and your imagination hasn't helped yet.
