Valerie Tarico on the Most Harmful Religious Ideas

We have had an interesting discussion about Karen Armstrong’s essay “The Myth of Religious Violence.” While it is nice to engage with such erudite essays, it is also nice to find something  that cuts right through the fog and lays everything out. As a short summary of the harm that religion has done, I think it is hard to beat this one. Maybe we could say even more succinctly that monotheism is the worst idea anybody ever had.
