My real gripe is actually that the 'religious endeavour' so willingly permits itself to be used by the political power. THAT is, IMHO, a major 'sin'. I've always felt that a major 'aim' of religion was to rescue us poor humans from sin. (However, I must observe that, in India, the 'religious endeavour' is often speaking out strongly against the misuse of 'state power' against the people - sometimes at considerable cost to those speaking out).

Well excuse me, at least I got you to plainly state your case at last.

>My underlying idea is to try to help people learn how to "think for themselves" - which possibly might enable them to escape the false ideas and values that the establishment' will always try to 'sell' them.

Well, good luck.
