Religion is what holds this country back from progress on things such as liberalization of laws and getting the government out of people's personnel lives.

For example in many countries with less religious people, such as netherlands, denmark and sweden more civil liberties are permitted.

Places such as Iran, Saudi Arabia and Israel do not.

The conservative right here toots the morality card but their hypocrisy is easily seen by the intelligent class in this country who wishes to be more secular.

Because religious beliefs are in conflict with the social issues the progressives want accepted by society.

I think perhpas the last sentence shows just now controlled the Op is by the inteligent class comment. I thnk perhaps the moral verus secualr comment is the funniest when commenting on the difference between liberal and conservative. Op certaily needs to red the little rad Moa book on just what control of thoguht really means or perhaps go to one of the reeducaion camps they setup since polical correctness is clear to the OP.

Well the left seem big on abortion and gay rights. Not so much for family values.
Abortion and gay rights don't lead to any population growth.

Religion is also what keeps this country somewhat civilized. Just wait too see what this country is like in 50 years and you will see.

Extreme religious views certainly do hold back development - absolutely no question about that.

If those people had been in charge of America for the last 200 years, I have no doubt that black people would still be owned like dogs and women would not be voting.
