Religious bondage shackles and debilitates the mind, and unfits it for every noble enterprise, every expanded prospect.
― James Madison

"Religious bondage" is an apt phrase, as the word "religion" itself means to bind back ... and I don't see that brand of BDSM being safe, sane OR truly, genuinely consensual!

[A poem] allows us to have the life we are denied because we are too busy living.

“Without the gods, how would I sing?" I asked.
"With your own voice," he said.
― Erica Jong

How many believing fools out there seem to think they have no voice of their own?  WAY TOO MANY.

"The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd." - Bertrand Russell

Gods don't kill people, people with gods kill people.

--Somewhere on FB, I think. [Sorry if it's a repeat]

The following pair pretty well say it all without comment:

You don't get to advertise all the good that your religion does without first scrupulously subtracting all the harm it does and considering seriously the question of whether some other religion, or no religion at all, does better.
― Daniel C. Dennett

You can't just say there's a God because the world is beautiful.  You have to account for bone cancer in children.  You have to account for the fact that almost all animals in the wild live under stress with not enough to eat, and will die violent and bloody deaths.  There is not any way that you can just choose the nice bits and say that means there is a God, and ignore the true fact of what nature is.  The wonder of nature must be taken in its totality.
-- Stephen Fry

"Death is no problem because when we are alive we are not dead and when we are dead we don’t know it." ROFL! OK

“Death is no problem because when we are alive we are not dead and when we are dead we don’t know it. So long as you can possibly worry about it, you’ve got nothing to worry about.”
