Which is religion wins the prize for the most mindblowingly, bat-shitterymost of all?

RE: Which is religion wins the prize for the most mindblowingly, bat-shitterymost of all?
Going by this standard set forth in the OP: "But there are some religions from which it is simply impossible to imagine an intelligent, reflective, modern thinking individual emerging."

....I'll go with Westboro Baptist. I cannot imagine an intelligent and reflective person being one of those.

On the other hand, I have a close friend who is Muslim and know his family well. They are all wonderful and intelligent individuals, 2 of which are doctors. I'm sure there are many more like them.

I also have met a fair amount of Mormons since my husband joined the Air Force. There are many Mormon pilots and I've gotten to know some of them and their families. Truly wonderful, level headed people.
"Of course, everyone will claim they respect someone who tries to speak the truth, but in reality, this is a rare quality. Most respect those who speak truths they agree with, and their respect for the speaking only extends as far as their realm of personal agreement. It is less common, almost to the point of becoming a saintly virtue, that someone truly respects and loves the truth seeker, even when their conclusions differ wildly."

What?? Aren't you forgetting something from that list?

... I was prepared to express my righteous indignation for being on that list, but now I'm expressing it for being OFF THE LIST!! How dare you forget about the Jews! We're batshit crazy too, you know!

Wait, I thought you guys were like early, pre-Jesus Christians.  Did I get that wrong?  Don't you use the Christian old testament?  Sorry, I really have got to try harder to keep up.

Leave it to the Catholic to ruin all the fun! Tsk! Tsk! I'm totally messing you lol

Some of my neighbors are Mormon and they are really nice. I don't agree with their beliefs, but that doesn't stop me from having a good relationship. They make really good Casseroles. One of my best friends growing up was Muslim. His family came from Syria a few years before I met him. The kid was probably more American than me. He loved hamburgers, baseball and camping. I also know quite a few Catholics. Nice people too!

Religion gets pulverized under the heavy sound of modern society. I mean the world is led by secular irreligious way, most of the big stuff happening now have irreligious flavor and religious extremism was used by secular powers to gain more power in foreign societies.

In other words? why is irreligionism -if that's a word- and extreme atheism are not in the list?

I vote Scientology.

It has it all! Extortion, mind-control, slavery, brutal dictatorship, corporal punishment, family separation, forced abortions, child abuse, rape, stalking, lawsuits, mind-reading, aliens, Xenu, and boats!

More like "customized to make an atheist feel "better" than other factions".
Religion left the international scene a long ago. It's mostly the big faults of irreligious entities that cause us misery now.
