Dear Editor, I am aware that some people make gods of all sorts of entities [Government religion always bad, July 30 Letters, Langley Advance]. In my opinion, going to aerobics seven days a week would classify it as a religion. Also agreed is the separation of church and state. Russia's Stalin is a perfect example of a leader worshipping his politics and himself.
As far as semantics, the discussion, to my understanding, is whether believers in a supreme being do any good in the world: yes, they do. Space does not permit enumeration.
Unfortunately, many atrocities have been done in the name of God, which He condemns - there's that free will again.
I would question Mr. Leguerrier's 10-fold statement. The world faith community succours millions, and does enormous sacrificial work. That is a fact, but the atheists never acknowledge it.
