Keep your religion out of my life!
[The following was borrowed from Dan Barker's new book, The Good Atheist.]
"More wars have been fought in the name of religion than any other cause. More people have been persecuted, reputations ruined, and fortunes plundered and murders committed in the name of religion than any other enterprise. And more everyday bigotry and prejudice is founded on what a person follows than any other factor ... Forget believing in God. How about thinking for yourself on any subject! Bottom line---I don't care what you believe, or what church you attend, or how religion-oriented your private life it. Keep it out of my government. Keep it out of my laws. Keep it out of my bedroom. And keep it out of the war rooms at the Pentagon!"
