Actually I believe the way my oh-so-suave governor of Minnesota, the great wrestler Jesse the body Ventura put it in Playboy, was "Religion is a crutch for weak-minded people." But it's just semantics.

Regardless of the actual quote, I can go both ways on this issue. I am more or less an existentialist, and agree that religion is possibly completely bunk, but if the rapture were to begin tomorrow, I'd be pretty well screwed. Either way, I see religion as something that is best left alone. Same goes for the religious of the world. It's okay to share your beliefs, like I'm doing right now, but to cram it down each person's throat that I meet, and base my relationships with others upon their religion is wrong in my book.
