I am neither a big religious person, nor a big political follower.
As it is written, I agree. But, if the 10 Commandments (maybe 8 of them, if you eliminate God) were not affiliated with religion, instead were law or a guideline to follow, the world wouldn't be too bad.
I do think the eradication of religion is a bad idea the same way I think over-indulgence in religion is bad.
Then again, we tend to cripple our own evolution by what the "founding fathers" wrote hundreds of years ago.
