"In fact, amongst the chattering classes, spirituality is far more highly regarded than religion, because religion is entangled in the public realm of ritual and behaviour, of institutions and beliefs, a realm in which questions of truth and duty may be raised, whereas the 'spiritual' floats free from fact and calculation and responsibility, massaging in fantasies of feeling the bruised narcissism of well heeled individualists."

Nicholas Lash, in Holiness, Speech and Silence
