Notes on Religion

"Compulsion in religion is distinguished peculiarly from compulsion in every other thing. I may grow rich by art I am compelled to follow, I may recover health by medicines I am compelled to take against my own judgment, but I cannot be saved by a worship I disbelieve & abhor."

- Thomas Jefferson, Notes on Religion (October, 1776)

You might not derive benefit but your children will because they, like almost all religionists, have had a chance to be properly brainwashed at an early age.
