As you know TT I am ignoring you and this is only the second time that I have read your posts in about 5 months.

And things haven't changed have they?

Where in my post did I 'berate' or 'demean' everyone with a religion? In fact I did not. I stated that cooperation is the best way to go.

It would be difficult to deny that some religions and regimes do coerce their inhabitants to adopt ideas of morality and behaviour. It would be difficult to defend a point of view if you have been stoned to death or poisoned, both in the name of different religions... or sentenced to death in a court of law that is corrupt and dishonest... all for the sake of an interpretation of moral behaviour.
