This is from a post about self-esteem on the blog Godless in Dixie. The basic point was that low self-esteem helps keep the congregation in line. This post also spoke to me quite loudly.
This is from a post on Atheism and the City. I've had vague thoughts along these lines in the past, but The Thinker put it better than I ever have.
