Look, I haven't mentioned Zeus, Buddah, or some religion.

QuoteI should add, too, that every religion is a factual and ethical mixed bag; a religion that contained only falsehoods and did only harm likely wouldn't get passed down very long. The Bible may be full of tribalism and violence. It may have verses that identify women as chattel and offer instructions for slavery. But that is not all it contains. Thomas Jefferson called the wiser parts, "diamonds in a dunghill." The beliefs and values of Christians and other believers are similarly jumbled, and when we think of people with contempt, we miss their diamonds.
