Amusing Ourselves To Death in Church

A choise comment from “Amusing Ourselves To Death” by Neil Postman.

“The spectacle we find in true religions has as its purpose enchantment, not entertainment … Enchantment is the means through which we may gain access to sacredness. Entertainment is the means through which we distance ourselves from it.”
