Religion is unethical - debate overdue!

Religion is socially irrelevant. Name one religion without a dogma, rules, prejudice and a history of persecution!
Check your facts before replying. I have checked mine and there ain't none! It was the church that started witch hunts.

Ethics and 'deity-free' spiritual beliefs are morally superior to religion. By 'superior' I mean morally right, objective, absence of ulterior motives, free thinking, democratic, rational, open-mined, more useful to society in guiding virtuous values, attitudes and behaviours. I challenge a debate.

Religion is unethical - another week, another dodgy priest exposed

Religion is unethical. It doesn't teach life's grey uncertainties between right and wrong. It teaches a belief system that only serves to perpetuate the power and influence of that belief system with its made up rules and myths, politics, chronyism, prejudice and control.

It is about time ethics, humanism and free-thought were taught in schools. Scripture is brainwashing.
Faith? Spirituality? Give me pantheism any day.
But I'd sooner worship a fly crawling up the wall before turning desperately to religion.
