I love religion with all my heart and soul and mind. If it dies my life, and the life of many other people will be poorer.

But now people perceive religion as nothing more than a pushback against modernity, an attempt to preserve “traditional values”–i.e. sexual taboos and sex roles.

Please, won’t anyone make some effort to disassociate religion from this garbage, and to promote it–as “spirituality” as a way to make contact with the supernatural, as metaphysical thills, as a source of pleasure?
