According to Compensatory Counter Racist Logic, “religion” means the sum total of everything that a person thinks, and everything that he or she says, plus everything that he or she does. A “religion” includes all parts of a person’s existence, each minute of each day. Even if those “parts” are never put into words, they are still a part of a person’s religion if that person willfully and deliberately speaks and acts according to those parts. Religion is not “separate” from existence, nor is it “separate” from any “part” of existence.

To put an end to unnecessary arguments about what “religion” does or does not mean, pay greater attention to what people actually do, and compare what they actually do with what they, themselves, have said that their choice of religion requires them to do.
