Religion is More Harmful to Children than Porn

The religious republicans are at it again.

Today, the Supreme Court, once again, stopped the religious republicans from enforcing COPA, the so-called Child Online Protection Act, intended to "protect" children from internet porn.

Just how much harm is done to a young boy looking at naked women? Most young boys have a strong desire to get a peek at a Playboy magazine and most succeed. Have they been irreparably damaged?

If the religious republicans succeed in enforcing this nonsense, then rational people everywhere should hire a good lawyer, like Mike Newdow for example, to sue web sites that promote religion on the grounds that it causes serious psychological damage to children.

What could possibly be more damaging to a child than telling him over and over from the time he's an infant that there exists an invisible person who is unwilling to prove he exists watching him every second of every day and reading his thoughts and if he doesn't believe in the invisible person he will be tortured for eternity? Yet we tell that same child that monsters don't exist so it's silly to be scared of monsters.

Hmmmm, porn vs. religion. Well, I suppose that sex can sometimes daze us and cloud our judgement a bit, but life just wouldn't be exciting without it. The drug haze of religion is the worst kind of poison I can imagine. It's like not ever being fully alive. When you really believe, when you're literally high on Jesus, you can let the rest of your life go to shit without really noticing.

It is so sad we brainwash our dear children to believe that they must believe in a dead homeless man who lived on others or we will go to hell, wherever and whatever that is.

But I do wonder why we and life exists.

Life exists because we evolved from some little creatures who lived in the sea millions of years ago. Simple. There is no higher power, no life plan, nothing. No big guy in the sky who stalks every one of us. It's the way it is because it just is.

As soon as people forget about the non-existant all-seeing god/s and their successors, then the world we live in will be a much more peaceful place.
