The Moral Insanity of Religion VI

The Freedom From Religion Foundation publishes a "Freethought of the Day" on its website.  Today, there are several notable quotations.  One, however, stands out for its summation of why it is impossible for religion to be anything but a source of moral insanity:

“. . . the being cannot be termed rational or virtuous who obeys any authority but that of reason.”  — Mary Wollstonecraft, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792)
