So that the religion of the former sort is a part of human politics, and teacheth part of the duty which earthly kings require of their subjects.
And the religion of the latter sort is divine politics, and containeth precepts to those that have yielded themselves subjects in the kingdom of God.

 Spirituality and Religion in Social Work Practice Chapter Excerpts   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-02)
Spirituality and religion were often perceived as illusions that had no future (and were often assumed to be pathological).
Because spirituality and religion are sources of meaning, values, life-direction, and substantive emotional and physical resources for so many, if we functionally ignore or marginalize spirituality and religion in our practice, we critically violate our fundamental social work concepts of persons-in-situation, systems, and holistic understanding.
As demonstrated in chapter 1, case method teaching is based on a pedagogy that is student-centered and requires a different set of skills from the traditional lecture.

 Chapter Four: Ruskin's Religion, Man, and Work
At the same time, Ruskin's new "religion of humanity," as he called it in Fors, concentrates on the problems of an earthly existence, seeking to provide the faith and strength, not to conduct pilgrimages toward a heavenly Jerusalem but to endure and make homes in London and Manchester.
This statement of a religion of humanity with a gospel of work appears in the last volume of Modern Painters; and although Ruskin gained a new belief in 1875, this credo remained at the center of his ideas about art, society, and life.
He turned from the problems of painting to the problems of society; and this central shift of emphasis in Ruskin's thought is anticipated by the replacement of God by man as the focus of his aesthetic theories.

 Sample Chapter: Influence of Religion on Law
In primitive societies the influence of religion on law was obvious, but it is not so obvious in modern societies.
The severance of these ideas—of law from morality, and of religion from law — belongs very distinctly to the later stages of the evolution of modern thought.
Although religion, law and morals can be separated, they are nevertheless still very much dependent on one another.

 The Foundations of the 19th century. Chapter 8.
Now this idea does not come, as we saw, from ancient Rome; it was religion that had introduced the new revealed truth, the kingdom of God upon earth, a purely ideal power, founded, that is to say, on ideas, and ruling men by ideas.
But new elements were added, and they were the living part, the sap, which forced the growth of leaves and blossom, they were the hand that wielded the weapons; the religious ideal of the universal monarchy was new, and new too was the race of men that formed the nations.
The original Persians were in poetry and religion one of the brightest, most energetic and most profoundly gifted races of history: when they had ascended the throne of a world-monarchy, their personality and with it their power disappeared.

He has a satirist's eye for the confusions to be found in any religion that tries to rationalise the irrational.
When the Christian and the Islamic states used to discriminate against all persons not belonging to the religion of the state, including the Jews, the discrimination against Jews was at once removed by their conversion.
But a non-Jew discriminated against by the State of Israel will cease to be so treated the moment he or she converts to Judaism.This simply shows that the same kind of exclusivity that is regarded by a majority of the diaspora Jews as antisemitic is regarded by the majority of all Jews as Jewish.

As we saw in the previous chapter, Indian life was dominated by the Brahmin priests.
Priestcraft was a degeneration from the original religion of man. Atheism, Buddhism, Ethicism and Monism are the four possible reactions of a thinking man against it, and all are at least twenty-five centuries old.
In any case the renewed interest in eastern religions, and the exploring of monistic experiences through drugs and meditation, indicate that monism as well as atheism and ethicism are still very much with us as living religions.

 The Foundations of the 19th Century, chapter 9b7
no way out of it; for in art the most senseless errors are as firmly rooted as in religion, and we cannot rightly estimate either the development of art of the year 1800 or its importance in the nineteenth century till we have cleared away all misconceptions and corrected the distorted misrepresentations of history.
For Teutonic philosophy is transcendent, and Teutonic religion ideal; both, therefore, remain unexpressed, incommunicable, invisible to most eyes, unconvincing to most hearts, unless art with her freely creative moulding power — i.e., the art of genius — should intervene as mediator.
Our religion never was history, never exposition of chronicles, but always inner experience and the interpretation, by free, reproductive activity, of this experience as well as of surrounding nature, which means the nature of experience; our whole art, on the other hand, owes its origin to religious myths.

 CHAPTER ELEVEN - RELIGION OF PAGAN ARABIA
Stones are well-known as objects of worship by the Semites in general and the traditionist al-Dãrimî states early in the first chapter of his Musnad that in the time of paganism the Arabs, whenever they found a stone remarkable for its shape, colour or size, set it up as an object of worship.
The only defence which every pagan put up for his religion was that it was the religion of his forefathers and, as such, hallowed by time and tradition.
In any case, a religion stands in need of a philosophical defence only when it is already on a course of decline, and an inner dissatisfaction starts gnawing at the heart of its more perceptive adherents.
