Religion is fine until it begins to inflict harm

Liam Neeson is a talented actor, an Irishman we can all be proud of. Would it be too much to ask that he pursue whatever religion he wants, without judgment? (News, later editions, January 25.)

Of course, all religions are equal, provided they harm no one. And if the Catholic Church really did believe that Jesus was the Son of God, they could not possibly have allowed the abuse of children.

Jesus said: "Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for to such belongeth the kingdom of God."

The only thing that matters is that we harm no one.
