Mary Lefkowitz om religioner

Mary Lefkowitz, forfatter til “Greek Gods, Human Lives: What We Can Learn From Myths.” i New York Times den 27. december 2003:

In their most extreme forms, monotheistic religions are deeply intolerant. If there is only one right way of doing things, every other way is wrong. If we are good, others are evil. By contrast, the ancient Greeks and Romans welcomed new gods into their pantheon and worshiped them alongside the old. They had no crusades or jihads. The Roman authorities threw Christians to the lions because they mistook the early Christians’ intolerance for seditiousness. They did not seek to kill them because they rejected the Christians’ God.
