02. The Central Place of Morality
I reject any religious doctrine that does not appeal to reason and is in conflict with morality. I tolerate unreasonable religious sentiment when it is not immoral.
Young India, 21-7-'20 p. 4

As soon as we lose the moral basis, we cease to be reli­gious. There is no such thing as religion overriding morality. Man, for instance, cannot be untruthful, cruel and inconti­nent and claim to have God on his side.
Young India, 24-11-'21, p. 385

Religion which takes no account of practical affairs and does not help to solve them, is no religion.
Young India, 7-5-'25, p. 164

Every activity of a man of religion must be derived from his religion, because religion means being bound to God, that is to say, God rules your every breath.
Harijan, 2-3-'34, p. 23
