Organized Religion is Great for Humanity; Rants from Lance

Organized Religion has served mankind well, by uniting civilization and societies for thousands of years. God bless organized religion indeed. More so let us pay tribute to the great religious leaders of our largest and most well organized religions. One cannot think of a better or higher authority than those who are leaders of religious organizations. For instance the new pope and former Nazi Youth, the BTK murderer who was President of his Lutheran Church or the many Bishops and Priest who molest our innocent children? All in the name of god and organized religion, isn't it so wonderful that these organization help us lowly humans with our questions, self-doubts and inadequacies. What on Earth would we do without such humble and moral leaders of our organized religion.

We must also be very proud of our newest in the news figure and member of the organized religion leadership and his tribute to peace. The Lodi Pakistani Cleric is a pillar of his community. The Lodi Cleric with ties to International terrorism incited others to defend your friend and mine Mr. Osama bin Laden to kill infidels, that is Americans for short. Again what would civilization and mankind have done without these fine folks to lead us? Shabbir Ahmed was the head of the Lodi Mosque. He of course he denies making any speech against the United States while in our country and says now that he has moved here he changed his mind. Counsel for the Department of Justice says Ahmed is linked to a terrorist group in Pakistan, and had preached about attacking Americans a few months after the September 11th terrorist attacks. Ahmed is one of five men arrested during a terrorism investigation in Lodi. One of the other men actually attended a training camp of OBL?

Since nearly all the problems of our society and problems with peace in the world come from religious leaders of established religions; why not just make it illegal to fraudulently promote works of literature and fiction as truth. Why not simply apply the laws of business advertising to the mix? For instance no false representation is allowed to be made to any individual in order for personal gain or money?

Please explain to me again why we allow people to have invisible friends without labeling them mentally problematic and why we even allow such utterly bogus religions to even exist in this present period? Think on this, then give me your answer, your one and final answer please.
