Smoking causes cancer. Smokers may not like this, but it doesn't mean
it's not true.
God wants you to fly planes into building in his name. You may not
like this, but it doesn't mean it's not true.

My primary problem with religion is that it is not true. Whether a
matter of fact is true or not is independent of whether I like it.
