Every single fundie who has said they gave up drugs/alcohol/porn/etc has just transferred their addiction to religion. The addictive behavior has not been addressed nor indeed worked on. They went to religion for the cure, and now the cure of religion has them held fast in its grip.<quoted text>
also explains why when so many give up an addiction......drug, alcohol, sex, gambling, food........they turn to religion.
It is not that I don't think they have done something marvelous for themselves and their community by giving up alcohol/drugs/porn/etc. They have and I congratulate them. But now they need to work on the real problem...themselves and their addictive behavior. You can never get over having an addictive behavior if you simply swap one addiction for another.
