Religious Morality




"Among the many annoying consequences of religion, the misunderstandings concerning morality that it fosters are among the most displeasing.

This means that a great many religious people naively assert that morality absolutely requires God’s existence. Some will even claim that if God did not exist, nothing would stop them from going about committing all sorts of crimes. Whenever someone makes such a claim, simply ask him, “So you’d fuck your dog in the ass while ripping out and eating your wife’s eyeballs if God did not exist?”"


I was reading this very informative, straight forward and seemingly scientific article and came to the highlighted section above. My eyes opened wide; I giggled and snorted; I became a fan.

A good example carries a lot of weight -- but a bat shit crazy, over the top explosion of a example stomps the weight down -- sometimes obliterating the thought, but always making the spash colorful.

Kudos.
