„I pray to the birds because they remind me of what I love rather than what I fear. And at the end of my prayers, they teach me how to listen.“

„I prefer vertical prayer, directed up toward heaven, rather than horizontal prayer, directed sideways toward me.“

—  Roger Ebert American film critic, author, journalist, and TV presenter 1942 - 2013

Quelle: Life Itself : A Memoir (2011), Ch. 54 : How I Believe In God
Kontext: I have no patience for churches that evangelize aggressively. I have no interest in being instructed in what I must do to be saved. I prefer vertical prayer, directed up toward heaven, rather than horizontal prayer, directed sideways toward me. I believe a worthy church must grow through attraction, not promotion. I am wary of zealotry; even as a child I was suspicious of those who, as I often heard, were “more Catholic than the pope.” If we are to love our neighbors as ourselves, we must regard their beliefs with the same respect our own deserve.
