    Support and undue influence are near to each other. Strangely, I've not yet chosen to quit the church - the idea to be nothing but German is probably too hard to assume ;-) - but I'm far from believing that there's an ultimate truth about religion. It might have had a role in shaping my ethics. But nowadays when I go to the church, which does not happen very often, and I murmur prayers and professions of faith with others in rituals, these are hardly more than rituals for me. Sometimes, there's still a certain feeling about some words or others which are somehow consoling, express a certain wisdom or remind me of childhood when I learned them by heart. On easter sunday this year I sat there thinking that events like church service are interesting rituals, though. It's almost strange this has survived: Passages are read and cited in several languages, songs that reach from the middle ages to nowadays' composers. Religions certainly are interesting objects to study.
