As an atheist I don't want to demolish churches,
I want to turn them in to buildings of knowledge and progress.. Me :)
Once serving as the church of St Matthew in Quebec, it is now the St Jean-Baptiste public library
And the Cardinal said to the King : " If you keep them poor, I will keep them ignorant " .
There are many versions of this conversation between ruler and church but it all comes down to the same thing. It has been like this for centuries, and in the dark ages populations of various countries suffered under sheer Christian terror as no means of torture were left unused to keep the fear of (for) god in the people..
And see how devout the monks pray for the soul of the man they torture to death
OK religions changed but the misinforming and the suppressing of free thought is in the majority of cases in the world still the same since it started..
This picture shows the percentage of religious people in western Europe
However in North Western Europe many Christian streams evolved to tolerant and well educated societies , As an example let me name my own country, The Netherlands where at present time, non-religious people are the majority of the population. And the number of atheists is increasing every year. But as we all have been taught to be tolerant we live together with respect for each other's thoughts and opinions.
But, in the USA large numbers of Christians have turned in to fanatic fundamentalist groups against science, against progress, against other religions. This Dutch website is directed at the USA and hopes to help the American freethinkers and atheists in their struggle against the ignorance and indoctrination of religion.
