I have a perennial discussion with my SO about the harms of certain religious beliefs. Some people don't understand that religion can seriously conflict with reality and do damage beyond terrorism that is not apparent.

Many don't understand the levels of batshit crazy religious beliefs amongst some leaders. They assume because they seem pragmatic and they appear to be an approachable non-elite that they are just like them. It's hard to disabuse people of that notion.
