"I do not deny that religion has inspired great art and music, which does much to enrich our lives. I personally have spent many happy hours viewing religious art in the great museums of the world and listening to sacred music in concert halls and recordings.
I cannot think of anything more beautiful or more touching (or amazing) than Michelangelo's Pieta in St. Peter's in Rome. In my youth i thrilled at singing Bach's "Magnificat", Handel's Messiah, and Brahm's Requiem as a member of a church choir"
