    So a mildly lukewarm take here: religion is fine, it’s a good thing that gives strength, purpose and fellowship to millions of people.
    It just shouldn’t have a place in politics. I am a firm opponent of antidisestablishmentarianism.

    It depends on the religion. But as a whole, religion is responsible for spreading a lot of dangerous ideas that cause harm to many. I prefer the idea that people would use their own logic and reason to live their lives – not an ancient book or spiritual leader.
