“Religion cuts an intellectual brake line, making them incapable of dealing with certain situations rationally”

Standard

From PZ’s blog:

“I don’t think religion makes people do wicked things, and that’s not my gripe with it. What it does is cut an intellectual brake line, making them incapable of dealing with certain situations rationally — they may do what is right, or they may do something that’s just nuts, but you just can’t rely on them doing what is reasonable.”
