COMPULSORY Q: Why do you want to join? (if faith/religion bothers you, what aspects in particular? (Helps us tailor activities to your concerns (within our remit of "peacefully promote reason/atheism")). Pls write as much or as little as you like.

what DOESNT bother me about religion!?!?! for starters, their active intent to suppress others' freedom of speech+expression in all forms. Their intent to purposely reinforce ignorence by spreading out-right lies to others,+worst of all to children! (what i concider to be a severe form of mental+intellectual child abuse)-especially worrying are private (religious) schools. The repeated use of violence as a way to threaten others to "believe"-horrors of this kind have occurred in history time+time again, always with the mantra being "our god is greater than yours" or "god is great" mentality,+then to turn around+insist that their religion is a peaceful one. The reality being that religion is used for those who cannot cope with trauma. This is why it's so easy for those in positions of power (eg: priests, imams, rabbis) to manipulate others into doing what ever they want. Ignorence in NOT bliss. It is the instigator of hatred, violence+murder under a guise of peace+love.
