I understand how some see religion, as the history has not been exactly peaceful. However, Amigo, how many religious people do you actually know that are out there killing people in the name of God? How many live on your street? You make it sound like every person that has a religious belief is a murderer or something. I don't think that's a very fair assessment.

I don't know cyphercat. It sure seemed like to me Amigo saying that "People who follow religion are a burden on mankind" was pretty clear.
Yes, it was
clear that he said religious people are a burden on mankind. However, you then said he made it sound like "every person that has a religious belief is a murderer or something." Those aren't the same at all, so I was pointing out that he never implied that all religious people are murderers.
Being a burden is a lot different than being a murderer. The point that he brought up about religion burdening society is interesting and I didn't want that to be obscured by you claiming he'd said all religious people are murderers. Just trying to keep things on track.
