religion is nothing more than an accurate expression and at the same time explanation of love. irrational and infinite: such a thing can only be called love. the love of god, in this case.
where human love might perish when the imperfections of the loved one surface, the love of god can be timeless, since god (as the imaginary, thus perfect being) is completely incapable of doing anything to alter the image of perfection. everything else is simply an act of human imagination.
