The problem really is that religion, and some religions more than others of course, but religion often has a very political component because religion often is such an over-riding philosophy that it applies to absolutely everything in life. It controls every aspect of a person's day-to-day activities, to the point that religion is politics, religion is philosophy, religion tells you what to eat in the morning and what time to go to bed at night. It is everything. So there really isn't any way to delineate where religion ends and politics or other things begin because religion never ends. So once you take religion out of the picture, where you can have clear separation between other aspects of life, it really opens one's eyes.

That said, there are a lot of people who use politics like a religion, following the same all-encompassing narratives. One of the more recent examples of this that I've seen are the so-called "political lesbians", women who think that just because they're feminists, not only do they have to hate men, they have to play lesbian in the sack and if any woman doesn't, she's the enemy. This has been going on since the 60s and second wave feminism, but it's becoming more fashionable today in the "9345 genders" and "gender is social" crowd on the far political left. So they bow down to and pray to Valerie Solanas (no, I'm not kidding) and figure that so long as they only sleep with each other, they're golden. That's find if they're actually gay, but these are straight women, self-admitted straight women, who are doing this for solely political reasons. It turns feminism into something that functions exactly like a religion.

And at least secular conservatives, at least most that I am familiar with, have a spine. You say that like it's a bad thing.

Well, they want to kill content critical of their pet religions, not anti-religious content per se. YouTube and Google has already made it quite clear what their political leanings are and conservatives have been shadow banned, if not entirely banned, for daring to say things that YouTube's "trusted flaggers" don't like. All you have to do is look at their "censorship" board, which is packed with far-left regressives, to see what they're looking for.

Personally, I don't want help. If I want their help, I'll go find them. Otherwise leave me the hell alone. Stock your shelves, I can find it myself, I don't have any questions, I just want to get in, get out and go home. So I'll trade you gladly. Unfortunately, my Best Buy has annoying commission-driven employees and nothing on the shelves that I actually want.

Whether she might be crazy anyhow, it's religion that gave her craziness form. It's religion that keeps people from criticizing the religious and getting them the help they need. All the arguments in the world won't change those facts. Even if religion isn't responsible for her craziness, it is absolutely responsible for allowing it to get to this point.

A lot of agnostics simply avoid the question entirely. They don't want to address whether they actually believe or not, they just rationalize their way around the question and refuse to answer at all.

See, my parents didn't really care what I listened to, I could sit in my room and listen to thrash metal on the radio all I wanted, although I did keep it turned down out of respect, but just the thought of OWNING it... that scared me. It's one thing to have the radio on and hearing a song, but going out to spend money on it gave you some measure of ownership of the concepts. Looking back, I don't think anyone would have cared if they found that album.

Unfortunately that's true. Atheism is the rejection of gods, it says nothing else about any of a person's positions and it certainly doesn't guarantee that the person is rational or skeptical. Atheists are just people and people, unfortunately, are mostly stupid. But I will never understand where the idea that atheists are aligning themselves with the alt-right when 80% of atheists are liberals according to surveys. Me, I'm an equal opportunity hater. I hate the far left and I hate the alt-right. The more extreme you are, the less likely I am to want anything to do with you.

But hey, what do I know, right?

I've got about 6 stores within a couple of miles but all of them are bizarre in what they choose to carry. Last summer, my wife's parents came over and I went out to get a particular kind of soda that her father likes. It's nothing rare, but only one store out of those 6 carried it. Not Walmart, not Target, not any of the other major grocery chains, nobody had it. I wasted about 2 hours driving around looking for it and it's a major brand!

It's like these companies are trying to drive everyone to Amazon and themselves out of business.
