Saturday Posts . . .

Today, I want to share a quote I got from a video game character, which I think needs to be impressed on every person who is intolerant of beliefs that conflict with their own.

“Faith is of the heart, not the head.  When the heart is ungoverned by reason, charlatans have powerful tools to deceive.”  —  Sister Justinia, a non-player character in the video game Dragon Age: Origins.

The prime definition of faith is that it is a belief in something that can’t be proved – so it isn’t a fact.  Nobody’s opinion (or faith) is better than anyone else’s, no matter why you choose to place your faith in it.  And the beliefs of any religion should never guide governments in passing laws that put other faiths outside of the law.
