What’s so Evil about Religion?

According to this enlightened blogger, it is the mind set which rejects reason and facts.

It is not any specific religious doctrine or act in the name of “god” that is the most harmful thing about religion. Rather it is the religious mindset. It is the religious mindset that allows people to reject facts and reason. It is the religious mindset that allows people to believe something just because they choose to, or because someone like Osama Bin Laden, Adolf Hitler or Glenn Beck tells them to. It is faith, belief with no rational basis, that is the foundation of all religion and which makes it so dangerous.

Odd, don’t you think, that he associates God with Glenn Beck and Hitler? It is obvious that this person has never read the works of the Reformation, or any modern religious thinker, and I am given to doubting that this man has read any real religious writer, would see the reason and the acceptance of plenty of facts.
