‘Thou shalt not question’.
The Future of an Illusion
Religious people love saying that religion teaches responsibility. But this is highly objectionable. Religious ethics is one-sided. It benefits only believers and is cruel to gentiles. It is conservative and ethnocentric. The religious person is irresponsible as long as he thinks of himself and acts as an instrument of God. When one executes God’s will he doesn’t need to be responsible at all. The believer transfers responsibility to the highest authority and need not decide on anything at all.
