Religion

“Religion is an organization bent on the dissemination of faith, over and above the meaning or truth of the object of that faith.”
“Beware of those who try to sell you simple answers to complex questions.”    — Scott Adams.
“The more I study religions the more I am convinced that man never worshipped anything but himself.”    — Richard Burton.
“Tolerance is to let others live like they want. To appease religious fundamentalists is not tolerance, but submission.”
“We preach peace, forgiveness, tolerance and love. We practice vengeance, persecution, hatred and domination. My personal beliefs are supported and validated by my convictions. Oh, and never forget …. my religion is truth, yours is a lie.”    — Religion, paraphrased (unknown).
“If you’re following the news, you know that the major religions differ in their interpretation of the holy books. For example, one way to interpret God’s will is that you should love your neighbor. An alternate reading of the holy books might lead you to rig a donkey cart with small mortar rockets and aim it at a hotel full of infidels. In summary, po-tay-to, poh-tah-to. Religions are very flexible.”    — From Scott Adams’ Holiday Thoughts, 2003.
“If religious people could be reasoned with there would be no religious people.”
“It’s hard to be religious when certain people are never incinerated by bolts of lightning.”    — Bill Waterson, Calvin & Hobbes.
“A rabbi, a lawyer, and a priest are on the Titanic. They rush to the lifeboat and as they get in, the rabbi says: ‘What about the children?’ The lawyer says: ‘Screw the children!’ The preist says: ‘Do you think we have time?'”
“A cult is a religion with no political power.”    — Tom Wolfe.
“A religion is a cult that succeeded.”
“The difference between a cult and a religion is that the latter is old. Like, stepping into a pile of dogshit makes you curse, but stepping into a pile of dinosaur shit makes you famous. Despite both being crap.”    — Opportunist.
“Cult: a small unpopular religion.
Religion: a large popular cult.”
“A mythology is someone else’s religion, different enough from your own for its absurdity to be obvious.”
“As a true believer, I would gladly give your life for my religion.”
“Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich.”    — Napoleon.
“Religion: Treat it like your penis. Dont show it off in public and don’t shove it down your children’s throat.”
