I sadly turned my back on Christianity, despite the good it does at times, when I realized religion was one of the two great obstacles to world peace. (The other being human greed.)

My biggest problem with the impact of religion is that true believers lose the ability to distinguish fact from opinion. When you're taught that truth resides within your Holy Book, you become immune to facts and logic.
