Some people seem to think that we should respect religion. That we should live together in peace.

This is a mistake.

You shouldn't try to live together with immorality. You shouldn't esteem lies. You shouldn't respect a depraved system. You shouldn't tolerate an authoritarian, nonsensical way of thinking that has caused wars and genocide, that has killed and tortured people for no good reason and continues to do so.

You can't reason with cancer. You can only feel sorry for the afflicted.

You can't compromise with evil.

Neville Chamberlain, prime minister of Great Britain, tried to do just that in 1938. He made a pact with Adolf Hitler, called the Munich Agreement. In it Hitler promised, amongst many other things, to not attack Poland.

The agreement made Neville Chamberlain the most popular man in Great Britain. Most people thought he was a wise, sensible and tolerant man.

Winston Churchill on the other hand doubted the sincerity of the Nazi dictator and warned that he wasn't to be trusted. He said Nazism was an evil system, that it could only lead to war and that Great Britain should prepare for that. Most people thought he was a ridiculous, old fool and a dangerous warmonger. They mocked him.

In 1939 Hitler invaded Poland.

Chamberlain had been wrong. Churchill was right.

You may call me a radical atheist. You may call me a fanatic.

I call you Neville, if you think we can live together in peace with the evil that is religion.

Ultimately, religion won't let us.
