i happen to believe that religion is another thing at the root of evils. many horrible acts committed in the name of religion.
oppression. intolerance. anti women, anti gays anti birth control. such discourse and suffering based on religion.
on the other hand, i very much appreciate churches built to glorify God ...especially old , european ones with.high domes and intricate stained glass windows; archways; fine marble. everything ornate and hand assembled piece by piece.
