Here’s a sane argument for sane religion.  Sane religion is anti-Glenn Beck, anti-Pat Robertson, anti-James Dobson, anti-politically-torqued religion; religion with both a heart and a soul instead of a gaping hole. 

Writer Paul Rauschenbush says this at the Huffington Post

“When we launched the Religion section of the Huffington Post one month ago,
I wrote a letter addressed to “Religious (and Sane) America.” Since that time, we
have had extraordinary contributions from across the religious landscape including
Evangelicals, Roman Catholics, Main Line Protestants, Muslims, Jews, Hindus,
Buddhist, and Atheists as well as those who defy easy definition. The conversation
has been enlightening, honest and, of course, impassioned. But perhaps most promising
– it has been sane. Our discourse has been has healthy and productive and the language
has been intelligible across religious divisions and beyond simple the categories of
religious vs. non-religious.”
