L.K. Hanson’s July 15 “You Don’t Say” cartoon, quoting Diderot that it is “not important at all to believe or disbelieve in God,” displays a little 18th-century ignorance.

Apart from eternal salvation (not a bad deal), current statistics say that religious people are healthier, happier, have more stable marriages … and, oh, yes, contribute more to charity and are more active in civic affairs.

I’ll take those odds.
