There's Religion and then there's religion...

For Hitchens to point out all the problems in the world and blame them on 'religion' is like writing a book attacking 'medicine,' that well-meaning endeavor which has killed its untold millions. But to get this result we have to define medicine as 'anything that comes, promising relief, in bottles or any other container.' That kind of categorization positively promises to blur vital distinctions, like the difference we might want to acknowledge that exists between penicillin and Cousin Bob's Joo Joo Beans Cancer Therapy.
Doug Wilson from God Is, p. 19
