Religion

9 Jun

At my daughter´s Kindergarten, there´s one hour a week where the class is split up into two groups: those who take religion and those who take an ethics-class. Since my husband is a typical Spanish Catholic, we have our daughter signed up for religion. One of her best friends, Dani, takes ethics.

This is the conversation we had at the breakfast table this morning.

Daughter: “I don´t like religion.”

Me: “Why not?”

Daughter: “Because then Dani is not with me.”

And I thought: wow, what a grand lesson she has already learned.

Religion is no fun when it divides people.

    Wij waren vanmorgen in het Joods museum in Girona. Ja, daar leer je ook wat mensen zoal doen in naam van religie … In de 14e eeuw was het bekeren (tot het Christendom) of de marteldood sterven. Het is van alle tijden. Hoe jammer toch. Want zoals je ook al eens aangaf, kan religie ook mooie kanten hebben.
    (Girona is trouwens weer een aangename herontdekking.)
