Religion

J sent me a linkt to "An edgy show about God: 'Joan of Arcadia' becomes unlikely hit", CNN, Wednesday, March 10, 2004
Most Christians stop their religious education in elementary school, so they approach adult problems with a childlike view that religion is all about rules, [Rev. Christopher Robinson, a professor of religious studies at DePaul University]said.


That is so true! A long time ago some pointed out to me that most people stop drawing in elementary school and so their drawing skill never go past what a 8 or 10 year old can do. But of course that applies to any field. If people don't study their knowledge does not grow past the last thing they learned!

That really explains why people have such simplistic and wrong-headed ideas about religion. There is so much more to religion than what can be taught in Sunday school!
