Welcome. I was a christian for 30 years. Had the holy spirit and teached sunday school and all that good stuff. However when i researched christianity with an open mind the facts are unmistakable. Also, I am studying hypnosis and that made me realize that religion is basically self hypnosis at its best and preacher use the same tactics that hypnotists use to make changes in their clients. At least with hypnotists you know that you are being hypnotized to make changes whereas in church they pretend that its a message from god.
They aren't worth being actually hated, the point is to see through the artificial control that religion represents. In a more primitive time humans had no way to justify authority in their society so religion was created to justify a hierarchy of authority that led to feudalism. Nobility was divinely sanctioned, they even had a concept called divine right monarchy to justify the entitled eliete class. Unbelievably this same logic is being used now to justify the worst American presidential administration in American history since the advent of public education. That is what religion does to people that are ignorant of how much of their culture is arbitrarily stacked against them by authoritarianism. The only power that Donald Trump possesses is the undying loyalty of people that honestly believe that God put him in office, while rejecting the idea that Obama was put into office by the same God. Pay close attention to those that come in the name of God and support a political figure, they are illusionist and control vast resources. This sounds paranoid but look how big they are and marval at all their diverse forms, from the Vatican, Buckingham Palace, the CEO class of nobility in America, Fox News, Televangelist, Mega Churches. That is what stands upon us, that is what it's all for, the preservation of power.
It all needs to burn.
