On why religion is so messed up

PZ Myers has a post pointing to this great vid. The internet is where religion comes to die.

Giving religion scrutiny. It is a must. What is the penalty for apostasy. When your Christian faith and terms are used in much the same way you use them, but sell child sex or polygamy, what do you think? People seem to loathe addressing or facing the severe problems with philosophies and rules systems that control many and make little sense.

Challenge your own beliefs from time to time and see what emerges.

Very interesting video. The shots of the huge group of kids reciting after a leader were pretty disgusting. I think it's important to note though that there are those who hope to continue with the favorable aspects of religion, such as community and education. I disagree with most of what religion is but you can't talk about it's cons without discussing it's pros.
