I found this on the New York Times website:
“ You might remind your children that, although much harm has been done in the name of religion, much good has, as well. Commemorate the Underground Railroad, Mother Theresa, volunteers who visit prisons and hospitals, all those who sacrifice for peace and justice. Don't let your daughters become cynical because so much good is private and evil is so public.”
— Anne W.
from a blog (?) called This I Believe.
What do you think? Do you think religion gets a bad rap? Do you think it's helpful to speak up more?
