As for religions

"All original religions are allegorical,
or susceptible of allegory,
and, like Janus, have a double face
of false and true."

Percy Bysshe Shelley (4 August 1792 – 8 July 1822)

If a person's religious ideas
correspond not with your own,
love him nevertheless.
How different would yours have been,
had the chance of birth
placed you in Tartary or India.

1812, Declaration of Rights, article 25

  1. My dear, dear Ariel! Exactly what God would say about religions, and about loving one another.

    Shelley's Declaration of Rights is a great document. "Awake!-arise! or be for ever fallen."

    Thank you for the link, Sean. :)
