REINHILDE VAN GRIEKEN / CONTEMPORARY CERAMICS- PORCELAIN/ STONEWARE
To many people faith in God matters. I am not really religious but I am convinced that a community can live
in harmony, exactly because of its religion. Society can only coexist and function properly if there are rules.
Is this not what all religions try to do: to teach their followers good and wrong, by imposing standards?
A high position in a religious community implies power of course, but is to set an example as well.
Therefore it is shocking when an authority commits a crime in his community, hiding behind the system.
He then misuses his religion indeed. Moreover, he blames his community: he tells his fellow human beings
– whom he considers as his subjects – what they are supposed to do, but nastily stabs his own God in the back.
