A Quote by Michael Enright on faith, certianty, compassion, hate, intoerance, religion, charity, and belief

"If this faith and certainty makes them compassionate people, that is wonderful and I applaud them, I don't care what they believe, they can believe what they want as far as I am concerned, but if their certainty makes them intolerant, or belligerent, or full of hate, or even murderous as we have seen recently, we have seen an awful lot of religious certainty which is not attractive and which I don't envy, and which I find is a great danger, then that's not ok, that's bad religion, and that is the litmus test. Paul says you can have faith that moves mountains but if you lack charity, it's worth nothing." - Karen Armstrong
