      Artists, as well as the audiences of art, use Religion in contemporary society book forms to struggle with sexual, religious, ethnic, racial, and gendered identities; to find forums for healing; to develop socially progressive attitudes; and often to provide environments for the supremely ethical act of laughter and forgetting. The vital energies become hyper-excited, the passions more intense, the sensations more powerful; there are indeed some that are produced at this moment. The symbols can be passed on to members who have not participated directly in the rituals, but who can therefore participate in the rituals vicariously through the stories of those who have participated, and can then carry the symbols with them as well. Religion has been science and asylum for many generations of very many people, uniting them in their common faith.
