“We need a religion that teaches our hearts to hope and our hands to serve.” (Scott W Alexander)
I believe in Religion’s high potential. Oh, I know that Religion has often been misused to instill guilt and fear, to control and manipulate people, to promise after-life rewards and punishments as if Religion was meant to be “fire-insurance.” Religion has fueled the flames of prejudice and intolerance and has been twisted to justify every imaginable form of violence. But at its best, Religion reminds us of our sacred value, calls us together, whispers words of hope to our hearts, and inspires us to embrace and share joy and peace. The answer to bad religion isn’t no religion; the answer to bad religion is better religion.
