Brainwashed by atheism? Hardly. Atheism is usually a result of taking a look around you and deciding what makes sense. Being religious is accepting what you're told unquestioningly. Religious people tend to be very closed-minded; atheists aren't. I see people getting very upset here when questions are raised about their beliefs, and belief and faith are nothing more than unsubstantiated acceptance of an idea. That, in my opinion, is closed minded. To just accept without questioning is very, very wrong, and leads to all sorts of illogical and sometimes immoral behaviour.
Look at the mess Britain was in when it was a very Christian country. Do you want to go back to Victorian or earlier standards of living and social justice?
