Carragher's Day of Judgement on corporate altar

Oh no, not another judgement for us to make… We are exhausted now, truly we are no longer able to function as regular human beings, such are the demands being placed on us almost every day to reach some verdict on which we are all agreed.

Was this how religion started? Did the people become so weary of having to make their pronouncements on the nature of various transgressions, eventually all these issues of what could broadly be called "morality" were just kicked into another arena, into this thing we now call "the church"?

There's no church any more, or at least none that has much credibility left in the morality game. So it's all down to the multitudes again, who are thought to have nothing better to be doing than judging, judging and more judging.
