Why Doesn’t Thought For The Day Include Biblical Quotations?

It is important to me that Thought For The Day, appeals to the broadest possible audience, so I have decided that the site should be religiously neutral. Therefore, I will not include direct quotations from the Bible or any other overtly religious text.

I do, occasionally, include quotations from individuals who are known to have a religious faith, but only when they are commenting on broader moral and humane issues than those which are specific to religious doctrine.

I respect the choice of anyone to hold religious views and defend their right to do so. However, since I do not adhere to any organised faith, I think it would be hypocritical for me to promote one.

If you believe in the supreme power of God to create, inspire and direct your life, then what use do you have for the human-inspired divisiveness of religion?
