“Religion does not by itself generate intolerance and antisocial behaviour, people’s personalities do that.”


Tom Bennett, head of RE and philosophy at Raine’s Foundation School in Bethnal Green, east London

…and our personalities are largely shaped by our beliefs. Christianity, Judaism and Islam all teach that believers are separated from the world by their beliefs.

You know, I say a lot of stupid shit and make off the wall comments all the time, but if I am asked to comment about something that is relevant to my particular expertise, I bet I make an effort to be accurate.
