What an insubstantial thing is religion.

I for one would never shun someone because they were religious. Neither would I pursue the argument from non belief with a believer if asked not to do so, and I have most emphatically been asked to stop doing so on more than one occasion, and have complied with the request; why wouldn't I?

Perhaps being "a nice person" takes more than just professing a belief in God, maybe you have to work at it a bit harder than that.

Could it be that some individuals use religion as a front to hide prejudices and "naughty thoughts", or at least to shed or confess them once every week whilst wearing posh frocks?

Anyway, at least Teresa Macbain now knows who her true friends are in the real world.
