The Horrors of Christianity

You find as you look around the world that every single bit of progress in humane feeling, every improvement in the criminal law, every step toward the diminution of war, every step toward better treatment of the colored races, or every mitigation of slavery, every moral progress that there has been in the world, has been consistently opposed by the organized churches of the world... I say quite deliberately that the Christian religion, as organized in its churches, has been and still is the principal enemy of moral progress in the world. - - - Bertrand Russell (Why I Am Not a Christian) Oh Russell, my dear Bertrand Russell, I said it before, I say it again: Never mind looking at the world around us, just take a good look at the Philippines - the only Christian country in Asia since the 16th century. . . In the Philippines, with us as a people, in this already 21st century, we still do love nothing but God up there by hating one another down here. . .indeed, life in general in the Philippines can be characterized as the daily competition to be the criminal or just be the victim of the criminals; especially, those as the officials in the government. . .
