Some Secular Wisdom


“One of the things that bedevils religion, is that it develops official truth, which is antithetical to real truth. You close yourself off from the future… It makes you disrespectful to others who may see things from a different angle and may not be stupid people.” –Richard Holloway (ex-Bishop)

“I have always strenuously supported the right of every man to his own opinion, however different that opinion might be to mine. He who denies another this right makes a slave of himself to his present opinion, because he precludes himself the right of changing it.” –Thomas Paine (The Age of Reason)
