I wonder if this comment by Salman Rushdie is why he had to go into hiding! ;-)

Scottie: They tell it like it is.

Debra: True, although I hope that someday the world will be free of it.

Bluzdude: Heh.....

Nan: Well, he also wrote a novel about religion that they didn't like very much. Nowadays he seems to figure that since he's already under threat of death, things can't get any worse, so he might as well say what he really thinks.

Martha: In a lot of people, religion seems to kill empathy. They see others as sinners or blasphemers, and nothing more.

Adam: There's plenty more where these came from.

Mary: If he knew how to take no for an answer, he probably wouldn't be a pastor.
