Taking religion seriously means work.

What a great quote! Thanks, I'll be using that.

Apposite, I think:

ÔÇťAlice laughed. 'There's no use trying,' she said. 'One can't believe impossible things.'
'I daresay you haven't had much practice,' said the Queen. 'When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.'"
