Religion making people virtuous

WAYLAND

Lawrence J. Krakauer offered some thoughts on religion in a Letter to the Editor today.

THE REV. John F. Hudson's Aug. 23 op-ed "And God sayeth unto man: I've had it!" calls to mind something that Bertrand Russell said:

``One is often told that it is a very wrong thing to attack religion, because religion makes men virtuous. So I am told; I have not noticed it."
