A group for those without religion, as well as those who oppose it. Atheism and Agnosticism and Anti-theism.
Implying that the Catholic Church is sane and speaks for all Biblical followers (which it isn't and doesn't).
The Catholic Church is still the largest and most influential branch of Christianity on the planet... and in fact they are somewhat sane compare to certain other branches of Christianity (WBC, Mormons, etc.)
And doesn't the Pope claim to speak for all Christians?
Just because someone claims to speak for everybody doesn't mean they are right or telling the truth. I regard Catholicism as quite far from pure Christianity and the Pope (and the Cardinals and "Priests" beneath him) as liars. Remember, it is Catholicism, not Judaism, Messianic, or Christianity that murdered innocents during the Crusades. They killed other Christians and Jews in addition to Muslims and as such I have ZERO respect for them. We never did any of that. Just because someone is clever enough to hide behind a banner and commit acts in the name of that banner doesn't mean they actually truly represent or speak for it.
But doesn't all religious leaders base their claim of leardersship of that "banner" based on nothing more than some saying from their holy book and their personal conviction and their followers faith? And who's to say you are right (beside your convictions)?
The fact is that the more fanatical sects of religion always seek to limit humanity's natural urge to seek knowledge, in order to preserve their own grip of power over this world.
