7. Jefferson said that any religious practice is fine

so long as "it doesn't break my leg or pick my pocket."

The best form of religious practice, to me, is one where nobody knows you're doing it. On the few occasions when someone has asked about my religious inclinations I have always responded by saying "You will never know".

For the record, I have no such inclinations (so now you do know) but I am silent about that in everyday life because I want everyone else to be silent about their inclinations. I'm not interested in theirs and I expect them to have no interest in mine.
