No, religion is about belief. It's what sort of mythology you believe in. Don't believe me? Compare the ethics of Bono, Scott Roeder, Albert Schweitzer, Anders Breivik and Pope Francis. What do they have in common in terms of ethics? Nothing. What do they have in terms of belief? They are all Christians. If someone judges them to be all the same because they are Christian, they are no better than someone who judges all blacks to be the same because of their skin color. "Hey, whatever he believes that's OK, as long as it doesn't get in the way of work." - (Muslim co-worker when asked by his boss if he could work with a pretty vocal right-wing Christian guy.) ??? Uh - surely you have read the dozens of threads here about the unethical aspects of several texts? Where is that "silenced?"
