The basis of all religions is to persuade the ignorant into doing the right thing for the benefit of the greater community. Unfortunately lying is the basic tool at the heart of virtually all religions. Anyone with more few working brain cells will soon deduce that the basic tool can be so easily abused. But many people are unwilling to think, they want (not need) to be like sheep. This leads to my favourite saying, ‘only sheep need a shepherd.
