Men despise religion. They hate it and are afraid it may be true.
Several times I have commented that hatred felt long and deeply enough no longer feels like hatred, but more like tradition, economics, religion, what have you. It is when those traditions are challenged, when the entitlement is threatened, when the masks of religion, economics, and so on are pulled away that hate transforms from its more seemingly sophisticated, "normal," chronic state--where those exploited are looked down upon, or despised--to a more acute and obvious manifestation. Hate becomes more perceptible when it is no longer normalized. Another way to say all of this is that if the rhetoric of superiority works to maintain the entitlement, hatred and direct physical force remain underground. But when that rhetoric begins to fail, force and hatred waits in the wings, ready to explode.
The religion that is afraid of science dishonors God and commits suicide.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Religions are not true or false, but better or worse.
Religions die when they are proved to be true. Science is the record of dead religions.
I do benefits for all religions -- I'd hate to blow the hereafter on a technicality.
If religion is only human, and its form is man's form, it follows that everything in religion is true.
The true meaning of religion is thus, not simply morality, but morality touched by emotion.
But is it not the fact that religion emanates from the nature, from the moral state of the individual? Is it not therefore true that unless the nature be completely exercised, the moral state harmonized, the religion cannot be healthy?
How does a person seperate true, personal religion from a religion of conformity? Christianity is not really as white and wealthy and judgmental as we might want it to be.
