People who try to argue with me about “how horrible religion is” with all the usual fire and brimstone drama, entirely miss this point. There’s correspondence between much of what’s good in healthy psychology and much of what’s good in common religious practices to the point that I don’t hesitate encouraging a humble prayer. There’s things out of your control in life. Coming to terms with that can be very difficult. Getting the excess burden off one’s own shoulders is a good thing and often while doing so, solutions present themselves.
