[1] "Religion should be left to individual choice. I, myself am a freethinking Christian. Too often established denominations make arbitrary rules that really have no bearing on being a good person. Christ taught, simply, to have no other God than the Father; accept the Son as the savior; and to do no thing that will harm oneself or others. I believe that one cannot sin if one lives by those three precepts." Interview, Frances Farmers Revenge.
