I tend to agree with that - people will do good because they want to do good, regardless of any religious indoctrination or belief system encountered on their pathway in life.Quote
"I can be a good person without the reward of heaven at the end".
I can remember the days when I used to be a meticulous and reverent altar boy at the Catholic Church. Indulgence prayers and Rosary citations were regularly chanted, the idea being that you get tokens and vouchers for days off simmering in hell if you end up there (a kind of insurance policy). One day I accidently touched the chalice whilst pouring wine over the priests fingers during mass. He jerked as though he had received an electric shock and flew at me in a rage afterwards about this sacraligious transgression. It dawned on me therafter that silly these rituals were not actually helping my personal development in life let alone helping me understand that I had a soul.Quote

Right on! And taking my taxes to kill other people on my behalf is wrong.Quote

Did anyone else see the program and get touched by anything said?
