Morality is doing what is right, no matter what you are told.
Religion is doing what you are told, no matter what is right.

Religionists sometimes argue that religion is somehow connected to morality. They talk of being Christian like that was a good thing. I think that society's morality informs its religions. That is why we see such violence from the Islamic world. It isn't that the Islamic faith is violent, all faiths are mere superstitions. It is the levels of illiteracy, the ethnic and other problems that causes the violence. Religion just exacerbates it.

Religion = superstition

Religion acts like Monsanto. People did good things before religion came along. Religion wants a royalty paid for behaviours that existed before they did.
