Hi Karsten,

I am sure that many would feel the view of organized religion that I expressed is more than a bit out of touch and that others would say that I am just plain wrong in what I am saying but one only need look to Egypt or the occupied territories of Palestine to realize that religious extremism is alive and well and still having a corrosive influence on human affairs. Even in secular states such as America there is an ongoing tension between Christian fundamentalism and public policy in areas as widespread as education and public health policy.

I was hoping to engage Graham on his opinion that the waning of religious influence in certain sectors of society was a such catastrophic occurance without sounding like I was attacking what may be his very sincere and heartfelt religious or spiritual beliefs.

Best,
Brian
