Religion at its best is always revolutionary and dangerous. We have too long been accustomed to the idea that religion should be solacing and comforting. Fundamentally religion has never been that, certainly not in its classic periods or at its heights. It has been disturbing. Its primary function is to keep us awake. But it has to be our own religion. Its principle ingredient is heresy.
