Thinking tonight about how vitally important religion is for so many people in this world. All of the great traditions have sheltered so many hurting and afraid people for thousands of years. This is worth remembering when we feel the (rightful) need to tear it down or take it apart in pursuit of truth, beauty, and love.

In that, I think I’m wondering if and how religion can be seen as a bed of flowers to be weeded as opposed to a few flowers to be picked out of a bed of weeds. Thoughts?

@vishnu that’s a powerful image. Idk if others had this experience, but I heard it a lot in my Catholic childhood to explain why the Church was better off when certain (usu non-conservative) ppl left. I can still hear it, “our garden will bear more fruit”, “our branches must be pruned”, ugh
