    and religion. It is both clear and sound.

    What I like about "religion" is the wisdom in its etymology: that it is "the binding together of what has been broken".

    When I use it with no capital R, I don't mean organized Religion, I just mean any force we find in life which helps us grow more whole and balanced.

    FDR was once asked what he believed, and he said, "I'm a christian and a democrat - small c, small d." I'm down with that. If I just read the bible for insight, and don't hit anyone over the head with it, I think it's a pretty good book.
