TFPO column: what does a plane hijacking tell us about religion?

I haven't set myself the task of advocating atheism, either militantly like Christopher Hitchens or with velvet gloves. But some newsworthy events so obviously raise questions about religion that I have to ask them. Unfortunately, we don't live in a culture - nay, world - that really encourages serious critical thinking about religion. It's the Great Off-Topic. You can nit-pick the details, but you can't question the basic integrity of religious faith. The hijacking of an airplane in Mexico, however, suggests otherwise.
