Religion often gets in the way of God.

Objectivity is the cure for depression.

I come from Ireland and I've seen the damage of religious warfare. I am a believer. I don't wear the badge on the outside but it is on the inside.

I'm actually starting to like more and more people who have convictions that are unpopular.

God's Spirit moves through us and the world at a pace that can never be constricted by any one religious paradigm. I love that.
