I have seen quite a few articles written this past week about how religion makes people stupid. Just using that phrase alone sets the negative tone of the conversation. It is Easter week so nothing is really surprising about all of this. Attacking Jesus has become a sport for the 2 - 6% of the US population that are self proclaimed Atheists. What they might find surprising is the number of religious people that agree with a lot of the things that they say. That's right, both Atheists and ultra conservative Christians use the very same arguments when they attack the religious beliefs of others.

THE Catholic Review said that those who complained felt “that we have no right, in this ecumenical (interfaith) age, to publish anything that anybody might consider critical of any religious group.” Do you agree?Many persons would answer “Yes,” saying that ‘there is good in all religions’ or that ‘all religions lead to God.’ Yes, many individuals feel that this is the time for a liberal, ecumenical (interfaith) outlook.
