A View Of Reason #6 Why I Am An Atheist

The tendency of religion to deflect blame by passing guilt off to those not deserving of it makes me phyisically ill. Much like this story did about a defrocked priest who tries to guilt everyone possible - his former diocese (which didn't help matters by reassigning him and covering up his actions), his victims, you name it - into believing it's their fault he molested children, not his.

I would think that a god would want one to take responsibility for one's own actions and for his or her leaders to protect the faithful no matter what the cost. More and more stories are coming out to show that this doesn't seem to be the case. Click on the link to see a very chilling video (it's about 9 minutes, so you may want to do this on your break or at home), or click on the picture for a print story.

More to come later.
