Karen Armstrong


"There are some forms of religion that are bad, just as there's bad cooking or bad art or bad sex, you have bad religion too."

Karen Armstrong said that in a 2002 interview with Bill Moyers, which begins like this:
BILL MOYERS: "If you were God, would you do away with religion?"

KAREN ARMSTRONG: "Well, there are some forms of religion that must make God weep. There are some forms of religion that are bad, just as there's bad cooking or bad art or bad sex, you have bad religion too. Religion that has concentrated on egotism, that's concentrated on belligerence rather than compassion."
