Searching for an easier religion…?

by quaesitor

I’m afraid I couldn’t resist this cartoon from the 24 Jan 2011 New Yorker.

Two quotations sprang to mind – which I’ll just throw out for reflection… The first is from G K Chesterton:

Christianity has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and not tried.

The second is from Jesus Christ (in Matthew 11:28-30), as he contrasts the experience of being his disciple with Pharisaic religion:

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
