It works well on nearly everyone (do you want to go to hell) “Don’t do this, and don’t do that, do what they tell you to, don’t want the devil to come out out your eyes”—Roger Hodgson Religion makes me think the founders just wanted to get their freak-on by making everything a sin, creating even greater allure. “We value people and things unavailable to us—things we can’t have”.

      ‘That’s why you need God.’
      ‘Not really. Know how many people I want to murder? None. Know how many people I’ve raped? Not one, and have never thought it’s acceptable that I should. My moral compass is just as good as yours, I just don’t need a completely imaginary beardy bloke in the sky.’
      This doesn’t go down too well, often.
