Can religious people and lawyers be trusted?
Anyone who receives a remuneration or is paid a salary for the work he or she does cannot be trusted and must be assumed to be dishonest or a crook.

The Pope in Rome is worth more than RM11 million and the Vatican is one of the richest organisations in the world.
The imams of the Grand Mosque in Makkah, the Prophet’s Mosque in Medina, and Masjid Negara, receive a remuneration or are paid a salary.
The Mufti of Perlis plus his fellow Muftis all over Malaysia receive a remuneration or are paid a salary.
The person who prints Bibles and Qurans receives a remuneration or is paid a salary.
Lawyers receive a remuneration or are paid a salary, and they charge an arm and a leg for their services — and many people have gone bankrupt because they had to engage a lawyer for their case.
Based on the logic that anyone who receives a remuneration or is paid a salary cannot be trusted, we must assume that all religious people and lawyers are crooks. This, of course, would include the 222 members of parliament and 590 ADUNs who are in the oldest profession in the world after prostitution — or, in fact, are also prostitutes.
That is why we cannot trust what the so-called religious people and the so-called ‘holy’ books say. Since everything involves money and profit, we must assume that religion is utter bullshit and just a con game to make money.
Thank God for atheism.
