Of Religion and Ignorance

There are many educated people who have ruined their future on account of their ignorance of religion. Their knowledge did not prove of any avail to them.

Is there an english translation of this? Or do you mean, if one is ignorant of religion, he may be attacked by religious zealots without expecting it? Or...

This quote has nothing to do with religious zealots. In fact, it is drawing attention to the most obvious truth there is ... the existence of God, and the need for religion in ALL our lives. Religion has been maligned so much these days (thanks to the lovely followers) and is generally taken as something backward that has no place in today's society. There is a need to step past the stereotypes, and know religion for what it is ... true word of God, and WHY we need it (no matter how educated we are).
