Logic and religion don't inhabit the same realms. The sooner we get past this roadbock, the sooner we'll give each its place in the economy, and the sooner such idiocy will be end.

Sure, the pilgrims wanted the sweet water from their god. Who wouldn't? Their mistake was taking the physical for the divine.

We could all use some sweet water right now, but we aren't going to find it in a polluted river.

Religion has a place in the economy? Maybe Jesusland... :D

The idea of business as religion is foul.

Meer, I think you will find that this $ is a far more powerful symbol than this

$'s = power and if there is one thing religions like, it's power.

Isn't there some christian theme park in Florida?

Religion and logic in the same sentence? I don't think so.
That said millions of people lead such short, nasty, blighted lives I dont feel I should, if I could, deny them their small consolations, even if it means propping up corrupt, fraudulent sects. And even within those, there will be believers doing good for all the right reasons and they should be supported.
