Thought for the Day

"No religion exists in a vacuum. On the contrary, every faith is rooted in the soil in which it is planted. It is a fallacy to believe that people of faith derive their values primarily from their Scriptures. The opposite is true. People of faith insert their values into their Scriptures, reading them through the lens of their own cultural, ethnic, nationalistic and even political perspectives."   ~~Reza Aslan

You can read the full text of Aslan's editorial, Bill Maher Isn't the Only Who Misunderstands Religion, from which this paragraph is taken, here.
