Tolerance-Bumper-Sticker-(7103)I’m not religious in any sense, yet somehow I found myself recently spending about 3 hours on YouTube watching both Richard Hawkins and Christopher Hitchens take on many religious people with their views.  It made for some very interesting and at times amusing debate,  but the most poignant point was this

“With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.”
