“And I think this is the danger of religion. It operates in this world of reason but outside the bounds of reason. Which is a polite way of saying outside the bounds of sanity.” — Pat Condell @ 1:01 in his video “Politics and religion”
I don’t agree with much of his video after about the 2 minute mark but his wonderful turn of phrase has to be one of the most concise ways of describing why religion is so dangerous in today’s society. Priceless.
