QUOTE | FROM Margaret Atwood




I learned about religion the way most children learned about sex, in the schoolyard. . . . They terrified me by telling me there was a dead man in the sky watching everything I did and I retaliated by explaining where babies came from. Some of their mothers phoned mine to complain, though I think I was more upset than they were: they didn't believe me but I believed them.
