#religion is the impotence of the human mind to deal with occurrences it cannot understand.
God expects from men something more than at such times, and that it were much to be wished for the credit of their #religion as well as the satisfaction of their conscience that their Easter devotions would in some measure come up to their Easter dress.
Music is my thing. It’s my thing it’s what I love. It’s what I do. It’s football to me it’s Christmas to me #religion to me poetry to me.
I’ve been in elementary education for years and my belief is that Christmas pageants in schools are little more than conditioning kids for the Christian #religion.
Christmas renews our youth by stirring our wonder. The capacity for wonder has been called our most pregnant human faculty, for in it are born our art, our science, our #religion.
There are a lot of Grinches out there that would like nothing better than to take any references to #religion out of the holiday season.
There is no higher #religion than human service. To work for the common good is the greatest creed.
The humanists’ replacement for #religion: work really hard and somehow you’ll either save yourself or you’ll be immortal. Of course, that’s a total joke, and our progress is nothing. There may be progress in technology but there’s no ethical progress whatsoever.
These things will destroy the human race: politics without principle, progress without compassion, wealth without work, learning without silence, #religion without fearlessness and worship without awareness.
All who think cannot but see there is a sanction like that of #religion which binds us in partnership in the serious work of the world.
I first became interested in women and #religion when I was one of the few women doing graduate work in Religious Studies at Yale University in the late 1960’s.
Wherever men and women are persecuted because of their race, #religion, or political views, that place must - at that moment - become the center of the universe.
The real #religion of the world comes from women much more than from men - from mothers most of all, who carry the key of our souls in their bosoms.
Those #religions that are oppressive to women are also against democracy, human rights, and freedom of expression.
The marvel of the Bhagavad-Gita is its truly beautiful revelation of life’s wisdom which enables philosophy to blossom into #religion.
Our bodies are at once the receiving and transmitting stations for life itself. It is the highest wisdom to recognize this fact and train our bodies to render them sensitive and responsive to nature. art and #religion.
9/11 was a deliberate, carefully planned evil act of the long-waged war on the West by Koran-inspired soldiers of Allah around the world. They hated us before George W. Bush was in office. They hated us before Israel existed. And the avengers of the #religion of perpetual outrage will keep hating us.
War is the greatest plague that can afflict humanity, it destroys #religion, it destroys states, it destroys families. Any scourge is preferable to it.
There are lots of people out there who think they know the truth about God and #religion, but does anybody really know for sure? That’s why the founding fathers built freedom of religious belief into the structure of this nation, so that everybody could make up their minds for themselves.
Don’t try to tear down other people’s #religion about their ears, Build up your own perfect structure of truth, and invite your listeners to enter in and enjoy it’s glories.
All #religion seems to need to prove that it’s the only truth. And that’s where it turns demonic. Because that’s when you get religious wars and persecutions and burning heretics at the stake.
#religion is about turning untested belief into unshakable truth through the power of institutions and the passage of time.
If #religion were true, its followers would not try to bludgeon their young into an artificial conformity but would merely insist on their unbending quest for truth, irrespective of artificial backgrounds or practical consequences.
My #religion is based on truth and non-violence. Truth is my God. Non-violence is the means of realising Him.
All the #religions of the world, while they may differ in other respects, unitedly proclaim that nothing lives in this world but Truth.
I maintain that Truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any #religion, by any sect.
