I'd say bigotry is what I hate the most. a competition between that and the Dogma of eternal torture.

These are what I was going to say.

These lead directly to all of the other choices in the poll.

I would say adherence to and propogation of false doctrine, every thing else flows from that. If people didn't give a flip about their beliefs, then they could be swayed by rational arguments.

Using the supernatural to explain events in your life is a failure of the intellect to comprehend the world around you. -The Inquisition

Gender discrimination is what initially drove me away from the church. It's literally repulsive.

Atheism is the only way to truly be free from sin.

RE: What is the ugliest quality you find in Religion?
That people are inherently bad. The idiot idea that all humans are born with original sin just galls me. Dumb-dumb-de-dumb.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
