Sodom and The city that Moses people found after wandering in the desert. They marched around it and then only the prostitutes house was spared. I am sorry. I'm horrible with names.

Read the old testament then talk about tolerance entire cites were destroyed and you could argue that they were filled with sin but did the children or the babys in the town deserve it. Second I said nothing of the teachings of jesus. I said the  Religious orginazation was easly corrupted when you have a Hierarchy.

I'm not trying to attach any religion in specific. I just know the most about Christianity so I use it for examples. I could start Bring up other religions I'm just trying to demonstrate that organized religion can breed intolerance.

Doesn't the type of people something attracts say something about it
No. Something attracting everyone only means it is more attractive.

Is a super model sleezy just because sleezy men are jerking off to her picture?

That  comparison doesn?t work. A supermodel is something by herself. Without other people however a religion would not exist. Second I am trying to argue against organized religion.  Once you get a organization that all believes in something and all believe every one  thing they teach there children about it and they teach there children about it. If it?s a tight enough community Each generation gets more fanatical about it. Then if there is enough people you get the Spanish inquisition

Question. Why do atheist always Have to be the ones who are called immoral as a group even though the inquisition and things like it were caused by religions? I have heard a lot less stories about large groups of atheist going on killing sprees compared to other religions.  If someone does something because they believe it is the right thing to do, it can cause a lot more problems then someone who actually thinks about it and decides for themselves what is right or wrong.
