Not me. I love the contributions of religion to music and art. It also make a person humble.

I hate the death, dispair, war and intolerance that accompanies religion when mixed with government. I defy anybody to come up with a single benefit by having a leader proselytizing and/or pontificating in their official capacity. Or making public policy based on a religion.

Let's reverse that statement about proselytizing. How do you feel about proselytizing anti-religious dogma or rhetoric?

It would seem to me that not killing unborn babies would be a benefit of politicians promoting religious mores.

Proselytizing anti-religious dogma is so rare we could say it does not exist, it would not be permitted.

Secularism is not the same as anti-religion. Even though I just did it, those words don't even belong in the same sentence.

Goodness and morality are God given, but not spawned by religion. Our prisons are populated mostly by practicing Christians.
So not killing babies is the result of human goodness, not religion per se.

You need to consult a few history books. Not only was there speech against religions but the slaughter of millions of believers in the Soviet Union. No communist countries allow churches or religions to flourish, and in most cases, not even to exist.

I was unaware that we switched this discussion to "overtly" totalitarian regimes.

Nice try !

You wrote "you commies" which was basically smack talk as you know that I am a US citizen and not a communist.
