‘...what are human beings that you are mindful of them, mortals that you care for them?’ (Psalm 8:4)
‘In this new global order, religion has two possible roles: therapeutic or critical. It either helps individuals to function better in the existing order, or it tries to assert itself as a critical agency articulating what is wrong with this order as such, a space for the voices of discontent – in this second case, religion as such tends toward assuming the role of a heresy.’
Žižek, Puppet and the Dwarf, p3
