Ja. If we have a lot of different religions, one or more of them will
take an extreme position on nearly every political scale. Since
religion must be respected simply for being a religion, it creates
plenty of space on all political scales for the non-religious to settle.
For instance, we have a lot of religions saying no-cloning. We need
one or more saying yes-cloning, just for balance. Having a lot of
differing and contradictory religions demonstrates that all religions
cannot be true. They can, however, all be false. And in the long
run, their existence promotes freedom.

Nowthen, the Co$ kinda goofs my theory. Dont know where they
fit in this equation.
