I have no objection to "holy books" -- what makes them holy
is what is written therein.

My distaste is for the ritual gestures which the faithful
are obliged to execute, in order to gain sight of the texts.

I attribute this to the hard disciplinary regime of the
Grand Muftis of Info.

By the way: strictly speaking, is an adherent of an anciently
pre-existing sect a heretic? Only in the eyes of the new one,
I think. Ancient fundamentalists have a better right to call
the new ones heretics ...
