If religion is for this life only, then it must compete on an even plane with other worldly ideologies.
And if so, why bother. This is a very thoughtful piece, but I think it needs to be emphasized that those who take faith seriously understand that its essence - that which makes it what it is - is prayer, the lifting up of the mind and heart to God. That is why a proper liturgy reverently observed is important, and why a frivolous liturgy casually executed is so counterproductive.
