Religion and Morality: A Match Made in Hell?

Religion and Morality: A Match Made in Hell?

Harris writes that violence is often caused by people defining their "moral community" in terms of their religion, and observes that religion "tends to divorce morality from the reality of human suffering." I would put it a little differently: for too many people, morality and beliefs become two words for the same thing. Many religious people think that their beliefs, however irrational, are morality.

Great commentary on Sam Harris.
