Purpose of religion: to create meaning in life Accepting religion creates meaning Meursault refuses to believe in God Didn’t have belief back then, doesn’t want to have it now He doesn’t turn to God before execution RELIGION IN THE STRANGER
“Drawing himself up to his full height and asked me if I believed in God. I said no. He sat down indignantly. He said it was impossible; all men believed in God, even those who turn their backs on him. That was his belief, and if he were ever to doubt it, his life would become meaningless. "Do you want my life to be meaningless?" He shouted. As far as I could see, it didn’t have anything to do with me, and I told him so. But from across the table he had already thrust the crucifix in my face and was screaming irrationally, "I am a Christian. I ask Him to forgive you your sins. How can you not believe that He suffered for you?” ( Camus 69). The magistrate tries to get him to believe in God Meursault condemns the religion, Magistrate becomes offended QUOTES
