Watched a 1984 Margaret Atwood documentary. And then her on YouTube about religion. Never read any of her work, but like how she speaks.

When asked if she would take the longing for god away from humanity:

I could not eliminate the hunger for god without eliminating language. I might however, decide to use god as a weapon. In other words, if I could, I would confine the hunger for god to the personal realm so it would not become something to bash other people with.
