Whenever We Put Humanity Before Divinity

The history of the 20th Century has shown that whenever countries violently suppress religion for the sake of human freedom (as they did in the heyday of atheist communism) the result was not only a forgetfulness of God, but a loss of human freedom as well.  Whenever we put humanity before divinity, we get neither right.

Yeah I can imagine no atheism, but atheism was created by theism, so we'll have to get rid of theism first!
