Jonathan Franzen quote

I have never read anything by author Jonathan Franzen, but I saw him on television recently and he had a quote I simply loved. When talking about religion, he said, "I worship at the altar of literature."

I like that. I really, really like that. I've been telling people for the longest time my religion is "books." And here Franzen has said it better than I ever could.

Yeah, I like that quite a lot.

Franzen is a great writer. That comment on Maher was pretentious, condescending, elitist and wince-making. That's something you keep to yourself. More fodder for the right wing is all it accomplished.
