"People are fed up with religion. The bar-room talk is that it causes too
much trouble in the world"
(The Reverend Ian Gregory)
"Most self-designated Christians seem to have found ways to spin the
doctrine that allows them to be as belligerent, violent, intolerant, and
murderous as Herod himself. In my personal experience (and I was raised
Christian) it's easier to find an atheist practicing the teachings of Jesus
than a Christian."
(Philip Slater, Huffington Post)
"Morality is doing what is right,
regardless of what you are told. Religion is doing what you are told,
regardless if it is right". (Quoted by Al Stefaneli, The God Discussion)
"It's not consumerism that makes millions of people turn away from their
churches. It's not relativism. Or narcissism. Or secularism. It's common
sense. These churches ask their worshippers to believe in things that are
ridiculous. The acid burning through the spiritual life of the West is
reason". (Michael Miner, Chicago Reader)
