When children are involved in acts of suicide murder, it’s the clearest case of the pernicious danger that religion can have on a society. We need to address this, rather than try to obfuscate the issue.
About the Author
I am an American, although I have lived in Asia for more than 20 years. I was born into a Christian family, but could never quite believe, although I gave it a good try. My Grandmother used to good naturedly call me a "heathen," and how right she was. I came out as a non-believer to family and friends when I went to college. I enjoy reading about comparative mythology.

A light look at why our believer friends should actually appreciate us more than they do.
