  1. Will this lead to people realizing that they don’t need a church to pray to whatever God they deem as the appropriate deity?

    My mother was a very religious person; however, she never went to church. She told me she didn’t need some stranger to tell her what was in the bible or how she should feel or worship. So I guess maybe those who are illiterate do need a church.

    As for me, it’s all a big giant pile of horse pucky.

    So, close down those churches, raze them to the ground and sell the property to someone who will pay property taxes vs. having someone telling people to go forth and multiply and then ask their neighbors to pay for their high number of offspring.

    All you green deal people need to understand is reducing the number of humans to ZERO will save the planet. 🙂
