Religion has caused many atrocities.

 

Catholic Crusades: Millions slaughtered

 

Muslim Terrorists: Thousands slaughtered

 

Catholics murdered scientists and banned science and philosophy, stunting society.

 

Muslims banned mathematics, stunting society.

 

Zionist Jews are allowed to commit acts of genocide and barbarism due to religious support from Christians.

 

Billions of baby penises are butchered and circumcised due to religious fanaticism and irrational thinking.

 

When will it end?

 

Furthermore, religion is a mental disease that is stunting society and impeding the progress of science, philosophy, and the social man.

 

Religion causes physical damage to sexuality (circumcision), mental illness, psychological sexual dysfunction, and irrational thinking. Religion reduces the average humans capacity to logic and reason, think clearly, and pursue philosophy and truth.

 

Due to religion, humans conduct their behavoir unfairly and oppress other humans (a violation of the Pursuit of Happiness clause.)

The argument is that "people must have the freedom to do religion" is a false argument. Religion is a tyranny imposed upon young children, they have no choice in the matter, they are tricked into believing it due to threat of damnation.

 

It is a virus, that keeps infecting it upon generation of generation.

 

Now you might say...banning religion is the same as China. No, it isn't, China is a fascist dictatorship that tortures animals...in China...stealing is illegal...In America...stealing is also illegal...if we have one or two rules the same as China that doesn't make us anything like China...banning Abrahamic religion should be a basic rule, like stealing.

 

Other religions, like Hindu or Buddhism, or smaller religions, are generally not a bother and have a low impact on intelligence and society, thus will not be banned.

Trying to ban them all would just cause more deaths from the people that believe so strongly they are willing to die for their god.

doo be doo be doo, beware of the penguins.

Who's going to be in charge of enforcing the ban? What means would they use?

You can't govern thoughts and private beliefs.  It is impossible and immoral.

 

Also, violent and irrational behavior is part of humanity, not just religious faith.  Ban the religion and violence will manifest elsewhere.

The Soviet Union banned religion, and also murdered millions of people.

My grandfather fought in WWII against Japan. He encountered a few Buddhists who were exceptions to your 'rule.'

 

Also, Hindus and Buddhists having a low impact on intelligence and society isn't correct.

Religion is a natural form of human understanding, you can't ban it as it serves a certain segment of the population.

 

You need to find ways to transcend it, not ban it.

Other religions, like Hindu or Buddhism, or smaller religions, are generally not a bother and have a low impact on intelligence and society, thus will not be banned. The statement that Catholics banned science

I don't know whether you're serious or just venting, but your arguments don't hold up. The Christian crusades  happened awhile ago--11th-13th centuries. There is no reliable body count, but the mean estimate is about 1.7 million--a bit short of your "millions". Much more recently, there have been far more killings by officially atheist regimes--estimated at 21 million-70 million (Valentino, 2005). So should we then add atheists to the banned list? The statement that Catholics banned science and philosophy is patently false. Historian Pierre Duhem credited Catholic philosophers and mathematicians like John Buridan, Nicole Oresme, and Roger Bacon with founding modern science. Gregor Mendel, father of modern genetics was a Catholic friar, and Fr. Geroges Lemaitre, who first formulated the Big bang Theory, was a Catholic priest.

 

While some transgress in the name of religion, Abrahamic religion is often a motivator for good behavior, quite in keeping with the "pursuit of happiness". A 2013 study by Campbell and Putnam American Grace: How Religion Divides and Unites Us found that at least among Americans there is a strong connection between being religious and being charitable--the more religious respondents giving significantly more in money and time to charitable causes (both religious and secular) than secular respondents. Judaism was distinctive among ancient religions in establishing obligations to care for the poor, widows, orphans and strangers, and Christianity extendeded these tenets in the parable of the good Samaritan and the Beatitudes. Islam treats charity as one of the Five pillars, and mandates giving of 2.5% of one's total net worth. Your blanket statement that religion is associated with mental illness finds no support in the psychological or psychiatric literature. In a review of 93 studies on religion and health, Dr. Harold G. Koenig, director of the Center for Spirituality, Theology and Health at Duke University Medical Center, found that more religious people had fewer symptoms of depression. Psychology professor Kenneth Paragament tells us :"If people have a loving, kind perception of God," they tend to experience mental health benefits.  But "If you tend to see God as punitive, threatening or unreliable, then that's not very helpful" to your mental health.

As for Hindus and Buddhists, have you read about the Hindu fundamentalist pogroms against Muslims, the role of Zen in Japanese militarism, or the role of Buddhist monks against the Tamils in Sri Lanka or leading the massacres of Rohingya Muslims in Burma? BTW, how many killings do you attribute to Quakers, Methodists, Disciples of Christ, or Seventh Day Adventists? I think you might as well go ahead and ban people and be done with it.

I believe in his childhood, Stalin lived with a priest and even attended school to become a priest himself. I don't think it's unreasonable to suggest that perhaps some of these early experiences associated with religion, may have shaped some of his later behavior when he got in power.
