Christianity offers to solve a problem of its own making - Dan Barker

I think religion had its time

I think religion had its time and place and that time was horrible time long ago and that place was horrible place in that time long ago. We have better ways to control society these days and no longer need to dupe people into buying our holes and patches. We no longer need dialogue that goes along these lines.

Hmmm that's a good question Goodness I don't really know the answer to it, I don't know what to do about it, it sure is a problem. How can we get people to deal with this Oh yeah God made it this way and commanded us to do this about it. Phew problems solved! Man pulling god out my ass sure came in handy, oh yeah, and by the way God also said you guys should give me money you know so I can continue spreading my, uh, I mean his word.
