You say:

"I don't think that "all religion is bad", because if it was I wouldn't be a god parent, and our grandparents - those who fought the war and now go to church to talk to God before they join him - aren't bad. Religious people aren't bad, and in large part that's down to their religion."

I think that you should distinguish between "all religion is bad" and "religious people are bad". I believe the first, not the second; and all your arguments relate to the second.

"reduce the advantages of office": aha, a Presbyterian atheist.

Owen - but as an anti-theist you do think that people who practice religion are *being* bad don't you?

If you read on from what you've quoted (which i've amended to try to be clearer), I say "Religious people aren't bad, and in large part that's down to their religion."

Isn't that a good enough distinction?
