The End of Reason

AlterNet: The End of Reason

This is a great op-ed by David Morris at AlterNet. Here is a concise summary of his argument: "Organized religion elevates superstition to an entirely new level, so let's call its institutons by their proper name: superstition-based institutions." He traces the history of religion's influence on American politics and discusses the detrimental effects of superstition (i.e., faith) on society. Highly recommended read.
