For some people, this is a very powerful need – the religious impulse. Many others do not feel this need at all.
In my own family, my parent’s generation were ardent RLDS – my generation less so – and the next generation (the children of my siblings) feel the need for it very little.
I have written about this, in this blog – and to my surprise, found other people were interested in it also.
There is a large group of people – the Evangelicals – who are still very much religious. And another large group of people – Islam – who are also religious. A huge clash is going on between these groups.
The non-religious (the secular) can see this happening easily. But the religious cannot.
It is unusual for the radically religious to be tolerant.
