A Quote by sam harris on moderates, religious moderates, religion, faith, and belief

Moderates do not want to kill anyone in the name of God, but they want us to keep using the word “God” as though we knew what we were talking about.  And they do not want anything too critical said about people who really believe in the God of their fathers, because tolerance, perhaps above all else, is sacred.  To speak plainly and truthfully about the state of our world – to say, for instance, that the Bible and Koran both contain mountains of life-destroying gibberish – is antithetical to tolerance as moderates currently conceive it.  But we can no longer afford the luxury of such political correctness.  We must finally recognize the price we paying to maintain the iconography of our ignorance.
