It infects us in our most basic integrity. It says that we can’t be moral without a “Big Brother” (A reference to George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four) or a totalitarian permission. It means we can’t be good to one another or we can’t think without this. We must be afraid. We must also be forced to love someone whom we fear.

Ethical life is possible without Religion and you know it. 😉
