Truth be told, even though I live in one of the most conservative parts of Canada you'll ever find, and I still don't know a single Christian in my generation. When I go to church, everyone is in their 40s or older. People I know don't really talk about religion, but when they do, it's not favourable. It's weird, I've talked to younger people who go to my church and they don't even believe in Jesus. For minority religions, it's a different story, I know of religious muslims and sikhs my age, but with Christians, I don't know, it's like the religion's going to die with this generation's parents. It's very sad.

If you believe in that kind of stuff, then I suppose it might be. For the rest of us, it doesn't matter very much at all to be honest.

I could care less if my neighbour is a worshipper of the 'goddess of the thong' as long as he saddles up and runs over to perform CPR on me when he sees me drop on my lawn; he will have performed as I would expect I would perform if the roles reversed.

Take your religions and stuff them where the sun don't shine if any part of them are the cause or result in ANY intolerance towards your fellow man. If that be the case you're a fraud and so is your so-called God.

Morgentaler again:

Michael Valpy: Morgentaler's other legacy ? the wall between church and state - Canada - CBC News

I find the pro-Morgentaler and anti-religious comments following this and other columns regarding the man's death sickening. So much for civilized Canada, eh?

Religion has no place in a civilized society.

Freedom of belief is also the cornerstone of a free and civilized society. Do you think atheists alone can lay claim to the title of civilized?

That so many Canadians have embraced either atheism or agnosticism with passion warms my heart a great deal. Now, if only those who feel that traditional faiths no longer meet some kind of misguided need for spirituality would give up on yoga and the environment as substitutes of a sort. I am encouraged to believe that the people of Canada are moving in the right direction.

Why would I give up on yoga? It keeps me supple, limber and in terrific shape.

C'mon Mouldy; you're gonna lose this round too.

Religion and civilization are two mutually exclusive issues that do not require the existence of both for either one to exist.

One could arguably state that a more civilized society could be achieved if all religions were banned outright. A country full of people believing in the goodness of each other needs neither a particular God or church to throw a monkey wrench into their tranquility.
