I don't think it's religion that is, itself, a problem. It's when 
someone feels their idea of god imposes restrictions on them, and that 
is enough for them to push those restrictions on others that problems 

If you think life begins at fertilization? Fine, don't get an abortion. 
You think it's a sin to "spill your seed", fine, don't use birth 
control. Just don't tell me what I should believe or what I can't do 
when it doesn't affect you in the least. If you still insist on pushing 
your views on me, then I expect you to respect the view and rules of 
other religions. So put down that steak, don't use any tools or 
electricity from Friday sundown... you get the idea.

If you don't think those apply to you, then you understand why I don't 
think your rules apply to me.

Anyway, let's get back to IT.
