My sister wife Tamara [..] is the epitome of sex appeal … yet she is not especially pretty and no one who has slept with her talks about her technique. But their faces light up when they see her and their voices throb when they speak of her.

I asked Jubal Harshaw about Tammy because Jubal is the most analytical of my husbands. He said, Mama Maureen, quit pulling my leg. You of all people know the answer.
I denied it.

All right, he said, but I still think you are fishing. Sex appeal is the outer evidence of deep interest in your partner's pleasure.

Given his definition of religion, his attack on it is the philosophical equivalent of taking sweets from a baby. These things are wrong: "female genital excision, blood feuds, infanticide, the torture of animals, scarification, foot binding, cannibalism, ceremonial rape, human sacrifice". The list goes on.

With regard to the god Harris describes, I am a much more convinced atheist than he – even though I am a priest. For Harris asks constantly for evidence, with the implication that if he discovered some, he would change his mind.

My own line would be that even if the god he described was proved to exist, I would see it as my moral duty to be an atheist.
