The reason of that war in Vietnam was because the wealthiest in US were scared that the expansion of communism would take their money. That why all these people were killed, to preserve the money of the richest.

The people that the religious rape and abuse are the weak and at-risk - women and children. How will no money stop that?

Maybe I'm assuming too much.

Gaetan, do you think that the religious should be stopped from abusing and raping those most at-risk?

Isn't it ironic that politicians like Sanders, Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi are "rich" even though they want to tax everyone to give away "free" stuff.

I don't think that Mrs Clinton or Pelosi want to tax rich.

How would that stop abuse by religion?

"In six months, over 2,600 church abuse allegations revealed"

We have to eliminate religion. I know that makes you so mad that you can't even see my posts anymore but you have to face reality.

Where else will they get tax money from? Do you think the guy using food stamps is going to pay all the taxes?

You'd be surprised the amount the government gets from poor in tax.

They get nothing from churches. Yet look at the misery that religion causes.

This is not true, an exemple: How much a poor pays in tax when he buys a beer and a pack of cigarettes to forget about his misery?
