History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government.
I am strongly apposed to organized religion. God did not create religion. We did. I will not boast about being more faithful or closer to God than other people. I'd like to encourage all of you to study the Bible and focus on your own interpretation instead of the interpretations of "religious authorities". I try to post unusual and even heretical interpretations of the Bible, but who is to say that they are incorrect?
