God Save the Heretic

God Save the Heretic
(Times Online)
The difficulty, at least for the scientifically educated but spiritually malnourished, is not the idea of religion itself, meaning some system of ritualized worship that helps us to make sense, if only symbolically, of the human, natural and supernatural worlds. The difficulty is rather that all the religions on offer are so patently preposterous, if not downright unpleasant.

This piece, unlike an earlier one, doesn’t leave out Hindus or Buddhists.
