WATCH THE RELIGIOUS CUSTOMS

        There are religious customs, like running naked in the snow in winter, parading with elaborate bonnets and men cutting or piercing themselves.  Wouldn't it be better for such men to be unreligious than to practice such a religion?  Their defense seems to be that everyone else is doing it.  

        The pagan religion of Rome was founded by Romulus who killed his own brother.  It was a religion that kidnapped and raped virgins and married women alike.  They went to war against their own fellow citizens.  The religion of Rome grew by the loss of others.

        Many religions live by these principles through the present day.  They murder priests, insult and scorn the gods of others.  Some religions are great not because they are religious but because they are sacrilegious with impunity.
