"Can you imagine a world without religion? John Lennon did in his famous song Imagine, where he proposed that the end of religion was the way to peace. Two former Christian missionaries in Toronto are now using his song as their new mission in life.
They founded True World Care Inc. to urge people to 'be honest with themselves' about the shortcomings of religion, the 'horrors of fundamentalism,' and the problems with most of our religious texts.
A world without the Bible, the Koran, the Torah? It's a step in the right direction, say Alex Presenza and Roger Lapointe.
'TWCs founders, two God loving ex-missionaries, could not live within the contradictions, pain and pat answers brought on by blind faith and religious texts namely The Old & New Testaments, and the Koran,' they say on their website Trueworldcare.com. 'We've always heard it said 'it's all a matter of interpretation.' TWC is here to say 'it's the text's themselves!' '"
