Douglas Rushkoff is on to something.

"When religions are practiced, as they are by a majority of those in developed nations, today, as a kind of nostalgic little ritual - a community event or an excuse to get together and not work - it doesn't really screw anything up too badly. But when they radically alter our ability to contend with reality, cope with difference, or implement the most basic ethical provisions, they must be stopped."

Go and read the rest of the essay. Of course if you are fundamentalist you will be pissed. If you are a thinking, open minded person you will be impressed that someone had the balls to say it.
