Why do these guys always pick on Richard? Christopher Hitchens and Sam Harris are both way more likely to call religious people morons than Richard -- who I've actually never heard do this (although he might have). I guess using Richard's name in your article scores you a few points or something.

Anyway, I thought this article was interesting. From the North American point of view, church does seem to be a "serotonin factory" type thing. My friends who attend church every Sunday say it always makes them "feel better" and "feel connected" to each other and the community. He may have been off the reservation about everything else but on this point, I think he's close to being right.
