“SMOKE & MIRRORS?“
Why is it taboo in nearly every corner of our culture to question religion?
Religion is so sheltered from criticism that it allows perfectly sane/intelligent people to believe en masse what only idiots and lunatics could believe in isolation.
If you believe that saying a few Latin words over your pancakes will turn it into the body of Elvis – you are crazy.
But if you believe that the same mumbo jumbo over a cracker will transform it into the body of Christ – you are just Catholic.
Family values, everyone agrees, are important.
Shouldn’t they include, at a minimum, honesty and a healthy respect for intellectual integrity?
