Should Governments rescind the Noble Lie of religions?

These lies were and are given to insure social harmony in an uneducated and gullible population. Our Governments lie and allow liars to lie to us of the supernatural, fantasy and magic.

Governments learned a long ago that religions were a good tool to use for social manipulation and control. Governments allowed and encouraged belief in fantasy, miracles and magic, the opium of the masses, and have lived with the drugged up population and religions.

Governments, with this noble lie, have maintained the current idiocy of immoral teachings within religions and have caused much unjust discrimination and denigration of innocent populations of Gays, women and many others, for just doing what we now see as moral.

Do you think we have matured enough as a people that we can now rescind the laws that protect religions and gives them a tax haven and legitimacy?

Are we intelligent enough to not need these lies anymore?

Can the population take our real reality or is the Government just going to let the flim-flam con game of religions to continue to damage the mental capabilities of the citizens in our country?

Flim-flam and con artists are subject to the law of the land. --- except for religions.

Can the population of take the truth?

Interesting that you call it a lie when it cannot be proved either way. You can't absolutely declare something a lie if you do not know whether or not it is a lie.

And regardless of whether or not it is a lie, you cannot take away a person's right to believe in lies.

So you prefer that the government and religions keeps lying to the people.

Ok.

Why would you want that?

I did not coin the phrase.

It is to those who make a positive claim for God's existence to prove it. Not to others to show he never did.

Yours is a logical fallacy. Try it on children.
It might work with them.

True. But I can bitch when they do it on my tax dollar and have institutionalized the abuse of their own children with lies and their own women and Gays with inequality.

So because you think people are dumb, you will not try to smarten then up with the truth. Ok.

I do not agree as that is the way to keep them dumb.
