Religion as a Human Phenomenon


Let today be a day to look at our beliefs from different and broader perspectives.
What are our values, and what is our viewpoint toward Spirit and toward Unity with All Creation?

Religion as a human phenomenon is as riddled through
with potential for both good and evil as any other phenomenon.
- Richard John Neuhaus

Religious groups have probably both fed more people and killed more people
than any other kinds of organizations in human history.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

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.
- Bono

Religion serves as the soul of community,
it gets drawn into the fracas and turns up the heat.
- Huston Smith

Gentleness, self-sacrifice and generosity
are the exclusive possession of no one race or religion.
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

It is only partly true that religion does more harm than good in society.
The community makes God into the image it wants,
vengeful, or milky sweet, or scrupulously just, and so on.
- Mary Douglas

I never considered a difference of opinion
in politics, in religion, in philosophy,
as cause for withdrawing from a friend.
- Thomas Jefferson

God has no religion.
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

In religion as in politics, it so happens that we have
less charity for those who believe half our creed,
than for those who deny the whole of it.
- Charles Caleb Colton

The essence of all religions is one.
Only their approaches are different.
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully
as when they do it from religious conviction.
- Blaise Pascal

I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church.
For you and I are sons of one religion, and it is the Spirit.
- Khalil Gibran

We are all of one body.
Any harm or hatred toward another
is injury or hate toward the whole of creation and toward oneself.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

We can never be the better for our religion
if our neighbor is the worse for it.
- Anonymous

A common denominator of all religions
is that they have the power
to bring out both the best and the worst in people.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
