Religion Is Just Common Sense With Added Bits of Nonsense

Indian comedian Vir Das tackles religion in his upcoming Netflix special:


What is a religion? It’s five don’ts.

Four of them make sense. The fifth one, they added just to fuck with you.

That’s a religion! Don’t lie, don’t cheat, don’t kill, don’t fuck… don’t eat non-veggie on Tuesdays.

Religions: They’re all bad jokes that got out of hand. And then the joke writers died before the big reveal.

Abroad Understanding streams on Netflix starting April 25.
