David's father takes religion very seriously
Sayings from the Novel THE NORM IS THE WILL OF GOD (18)- God intended us all to be "normal" (the true image) and if you do not fit the definition you are considered a Blasphemy. REPRODUCTION IS THE ONLY HOLY PRODUCTION (18)- It is God's will for humans to reproduce and create other humans to fit the true image of God. THE DEVIL IS THE FATHER OF DEVIATION (18)- If you are different or do not represent the true image of god, you are sent by the devil. WATCH THOU FOR THE MUTANT (18)- Refers to someone being different as being sent by the devil, and is not to be trusted. BLESSED IS THE NORM (18)- If the true image is portrayed, god will take care of you and will live a safe and normal life. Sources http://www.wsu.edu/~dee/REFORM/WARS.HTM
Why not let people differ about their answers to the great mysteries of the Universe? Let each seek one's own way to the highest, to one's own sense of supreme loyalty in life, one's ideal of life. Let each philosophy, each world-view bring forth its truth and beauty to a larger perspective, that people may grow in vision, stature and dedication.

-Algernon Black “Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you'd have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion."

-Steven Weinberg “We have just enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love one another.”

-Jonathan Swift
