Some Things Said… (December 06) (2)

The "great pillars of human happiness" In his 1971 song “Imagine,” John Lennon asks us to envision a secular utopia. There’s no heaven, no hell.

Amid this blissful state of affairs, of course, we find “no religion.” Lennon was a talented songwriter, but when it came to theology, he was 180 degrees off.
