If you abandoned your beliefs would your love go away? Your compassion, your heart, your goodness, your wisdom, loyalty and love of truth? No, no more than if you brought a new friend or child into your home would they detract from or replace those you all ready love. Love is not a byproduct of your faith, it is you and the hopes you have for your faith are because it is you, and in you and not in a deity, book, or mythic hero or messiah. If your religion is love, it is because you are and not the reverse.
