Christian Glasses

Contrary to popular opinion, all religions are not alike. Their followers see the world in very distinct ways. Their understandings of the human condition proceed from different assumptions, leading them to propose different remedies. If I had been able to resist the wisdom they offered me—if I had been able to keep my Christian glasses on, so that I only saw what those prescription lenses allowed me to see—then I might have emerged unchanged. But that is not how it went for me.
