Subtle Influence

One of the most maddening things about Christianity is it's overwhelming desire to wield influence over others no matter how much they don't want it.

At some point the rest of us will have to stand up to this relentless bullying and subversion of democracy in the name of religion. Until we do our freedoms and rights will be continually degraded.
