I remember it well.
Religion brainwashes you to believe you are a worthless POS unless you submit to the teachings of a saviour person Jesus/Muhammed/etc.
It teaches we are all sinners due to the fall of man, from the fable of adam and eve disobeying God in the garden of Eden.
You endlessly repeat you lack of self worth in prayer and in church, over and over.
As the story goes all humans are worthless and destined for eternal fire unless they believe in Jesus, eat his flesh at mass in the form of a wafer, pray fervently, pay tithes. That last bit most important of all! I wonder why?
Then you as one of the lucky few, the elect, will enjoy the company of angels singing eternal praises to Gawd in heaven or if Muslim the sensual pleasures of 72 virgins in paradise. Comforted in the knowledge that the 99% in hell or purgatory have willingly chosen their eternal punishment.
So kind, so loving, this "God". You could imagine that it was just made up by priests to scare the living daylights out of people!
The message of religion is that all of humanity is worthless pond scum--
-- and only by magic spell-casting, can a select few **elite** be "graciously" allowed to grovel at the feet of the creator.
Pass. It's all ugly, no matter how you pretty it up with words.
