    any one with some historical awareness knows that religious power and scandal go hand in hand for centuries upon centuries.  it doesn't cause me to despise religion. but i will always despise corruption.  

    i know some who desire a religion-free world.  that won't solve the problem.   those who seek a position with unchecked power always find a way.  whatever philosophy, ideology suits the era will rise up and take control where possible.   i think keeping various powers at odds with each other is the way to keep them in check.  

    it wasn't persecution by a liberal government that persuaded the earliest immigrants to escape to the Americas.

      It won't solve the problem, in exactly the same way gun control won't solve the problem.

      Other than that, I completely agree with you. :)
