Watching Religious Censorship

Religious Watch seeks respect for the basic human right of freedom of religion, and this  includes the right not to participate.

This site records examples of those that seek to censor the views of others in the name of religion.


Quotations

"People are fed up with religion. The bar-room talk is that it causes too much trouble in the world"
(The Reverend Ian Gregory)

"Most self-designated Christians seem to have found ways to spin the doctrine that allows them to be as belligerent, violent, intolerant, and murderous as Herod himself. In my personal experience (and I was raised Christian) it's easier to find an atheist practicing the teachings of Jesus than a Christian."
(Philip Slater, Huffington Post)

"Morality is doing what is right, regardless of what you are told. Religion is doing what you are told, regardless if it is right". (Quoted by Al Stefaneli, The God Discussion)

"It's not consumerism that makes millions of people turn away from their churches. It's not relativism. Or narcissism. Or secularism. It's common sense. These churches ask their worshippers to believe in things that are ridiculous. The acid burning through the spiritual life of the West is reason". (Michael Miner, Chicago Reader)
