    Why are some parents more loyal to religions than to themselves or their wives and children?

    Our mainstream religions are homophobic and misogynous. Every family line will eventually produce gays or women or combinations thereof.

    The less loving parents will reject those gay children and follow their religions in denigrating and discriminating against them without a just cause and will support the misogyny and homophobia their religions preach.

    The more loving parents will not reject their gay children but will often continue to follow and support their religions and thus help propagate the discrimination without a just cause against their own gay children and women.

    I can see some value for the misogynous and homophobic men in supporting their church, but why in hell would any woman support a misogynous homophobic religions?

    Women are usually more egalitarian than men, yet here they are paying for their own denigration and discrimination without a just cause as well as the homophobia that will abuse their children.

    Are women more masochistic than men and is that why they pay for their own abuse and the abuse of their gay children?

    Why are so many parents putting their immoral religions ahead of their own children and women?

    Many of those people say that wothout religion murder and rape are perfectly justified. So we should be grateful there’s something keeping them in check.

    You realize there are over six billion people on this planet, right? How do you expect anyone to respond to the motives of any particular one you might be referring to?

    Have you noted how the U.S., a Christian nation, has the highest jail and abortion stats in the world.

    Yet. Religions are keeping them in check, when they are behind bars.

    Murder and rape were recognized as evil thousands of years before Christianity and their God was invented.

    Many of those who lack loyalty to their families will read what I put and decide to wonder at their foul behavior, or not.

    So by your logic gays were exalted and women were treated as equals in the atheistic states?
