    Default Which religion is more poisonous?

    "Religion is poison" - Mao

    The Catholic religion has a widespread influence in the entire world. We see the history of it.

    Do we see that much influence with Islam? We all see suicide bombers and bombings. But that's a blip on the radar.

    Megachurch religion? We don't see even that close to the Catholic religion.

    The rest of religions? Just a burp.

    Regardless, religion is poison.

    Religion has always been a bad influence on society.

    Science made Zyklon-B, nuclear weapons and every modern weapon in the world. Science is evil. Ban science.

    The modern Catholic church has sometimes been a source of patriarchy, sexism, and reactionary conservatism. Crimes have been committed by individual priests.

    But the religious wars of Europe and the inquisition ended 500 years ago, so I'm not seeing the Catholic faith as one of the most horrific and reprehensible influences in the modern world.

    Meanwhile, as DU insinuated, 20th century science has been recruited to carry out eugenics programs, to use chemistry to gas soldiers in the trenches, and to create weapons that can destroy the planet.

    When you get down to it, in principle a case can be made that crimes against humanity have been committed on large scales by science, religion, capitalism, Communism, and imperialism.

    Just my two cents.

    the fashionable thing in leftoid / neocon circles is to be a soullless mass murderer.

    Mao probably killed more people in the 20th century than the Catholic, Lutheran, and Reformed churches combined.

    On a positive note science has been extraordinarily useful to humans in terms of consumer products, medicine, agriculture.

    Christianity was extraordinarily useful to humanity because it was the tip of the spear in slavery abolition, the development of modern social welfare states, and the civil rights movement.

    Agreed on Mao. Stalin did the same thing with his forced industrialization program. Millions starved.

    Agreed on science. Religion AKA moral teaching/philosophy, also has been a great benefit to mankind but, like anything created by humans, can be abused and used as a weapon.

    Abuse in religion comes about when the dogma of the religion supersedes the precepts and tenets of the religion; the original purpose of why the religion formed.
