I think there is an overall war on a family unit (political and economic reasons)which organized religion promotes. The churches, in majority, are still less inclusive of gender binary folks and homosexuals and it takes discipline and effort to partake which many lack. Although I am very much an atheist, I believe that there is much use for this oldest form of governance to exist to keep some folks morally in line and accountable. Ideally our education system will be reformed to promote critical thinking and the government seizes to be fear-mongoers, but I don't see this trend at the moment so organized religion can serve as somewhat of a moral compass in this chaotic world.
Ex Muslim atheist. I've been an atheist for 2 years now, I was a orthodox Sunni follower and semi apologist for majority of my life. Born and raised in the Bay. I work as a scientist in a cannabis biotech company. I'm into laughing, science, archery, hikes, food, exploring, debates, critical thinking, weed, poetry and experimentation. for intellectuals as friends or possibly a partner to love the shit out of (preferably those in their late 20s or 30s). An intellectual challenge or playful theorization gets my attention or if you're a crossfitter...👌🏽 I wish you all the best in your search for truth whether within yourself or with others, may this community out number the religious in thought and action.
Congrats on reaching level 8! I hope you recover fully to be the best for future productions! :)

Some religious groups are more liberal than others- Non-orthadox Jews and many Catholics (the current Pope included) say that god made science so god uses science, et cetera. It's really the fundamentalists that are the very worst.
I am an unashamed militant atheist. I am also somewhat of a hippie minus the newage BS. I'm a proud liberal! I'm here to make connections with anyone who feels we have something in common. Message me and let's find out. Skeptic4lyfe is my Instagram username. Check out my content.
