Hospitaller: I put no stock in religion. By the word ‘Religion’ I have seen the lunacy of fanatics of every denomination be called the ‘Will of God.’ Holiness is in right action, and courage on behalf of those who cannot defend themselves, and goodness. What God desires is here…(points to head)and here… (points to heart) and by what you decide to do every day, you will be a good man. Or not.
