Very interesting sentiment. I think there is truth in it on a practical level (the dangers of mindless assent, the wisdom of critical-mindedness, and especially religion's capacity to be used by powerful people to manipulate others), but I think it reflects an inadequate definition of true and false. I think most religion's convey some truths (we're all connected, treat others with respect and understanding, you are valuable, be about something bigger than yourself, treat the earth with reverence, try to do right, etc.) but, admittedly, religions have a tendency to promote the false & dangerous belief that "we're (always) right, and they are bad." I think there is a difference between a religion treating itself as absolute truth and being a community of people seeking acceptance, understanding, and wisdom.
Thanks for sharing/peace,
