organised religion…turns people into hateful lemmings and it’s not really compassionate

I love the idea of the teachings of Jesus Christ and the beautiful stories about it, which I loved in Sunday school and I collected all the little stickers and put them in my book. But the reality is that organised religion doesn’t seem to work. It turns people into hateful lemmings and it’s not really compassionate.

Elton John

Not that he’s being judgmental or ‘hateful’ about every churchgoer you understand. I only hope he’s ‘compassionate’ enough to tolerate them. That would be awfully good of him. If only we could all learn to be as free of prejudice as Sir Elton.
