    Religion is for the person who wants to be a better person tomorrow than they are today.

    The drive toward moral improvement, toward a more ethical life takes some down some strange paths, and others down very bad ones.

    My only point here is such stories remind me: People do try to see a better path, using the lamps handed them or - this being something I have a problem with - so thoughtfully upheld by people who do their thinking for them.

    It does not make the yearning to be better tomorrow than the day before any less noble a quest, just a more frustrating and too-often tragic a one.
