To the Editor,

What if faith does not matter and as atheists claim, it’s just the absence of science?

Bad people do bad things but can only religion convince good people to act badly?

In Luke 19:27, Christ says in part,  “Slaughter those that won’t accept me as king”

Did Isis pervert Islam or did Barack Obama tell a little white lie,

Can we justify holy books’ ‘kill’ scripture, or do we turn a blind eye?

Where is the little boy from “The Emperor’s New Clothes” fable?

Do rulers fear to lose church-state control tool, is it all sham,

or do the rich divide the poor in democracy? Is it a conspiracy?

In 1995 the average Toronto Communist party member was 85.

Gauge your church’s median age: how long can believers survive?

“There’s a sucker born every minute,” PT Barnum said.

Will belief in God persist, after all atheists are long dead?

In the FLQ crisis, Pierre Trudeau had to enact War Measures Act.

How many more deaths do we exact before Harper should react?

Can an ounce of prevention save us from later costly intervention?

Is national media controlled in a plutocracy,

or can Internet set us free from theocracy?
