"When you live in the shadow of insanity,the appearance of another mind that thinks and talks as yours does is something close to a blessed event." Robert Pirsig "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance"

Religions must update beliefs · The views of JP (Metro, The) demonstrate that most disturbing aspect of organised religion - the unshakeable belief that whatever acts are done in line with your interpretation of the teachings of your god must be morally right. This way of thinking has justified countless atrocities, massacres and holy wars throughout history, and continues to destroy the lives of people around the globe today. I am not anti-religion by any means, but anyone who believes they have all the answers is a dangerous person. Whether you want to call them religious fanatics, fundamentalists or extremists, their unquestioning belief that their hatred and prejudice is sanctioned by their god allows them to commit acts of barbarism against other human beings. JP argues that 'religion has nothing to do with being relevant to modern society' but, if religions don't update their attitudes, we will never be able to move past the mentality that led to crusades and jihads. Surely, people can see that using your religion to justify persecuting a man [Dr Jeffrey John] on the basis of his sexuality is the thin end of the same wedge that justifies Islamic extremists' attacks on the 'corrupt West'? But then again, that's the problem with people with blind faith in organised religion - they can never accept that they could be wrong. Michael Axe, Surrey (Metro July 9,2003)
