See above. Same reason, times 10. I’m not going to repeat everything I said above, but one thing I will: I didn’t write this book to tell you how to say what’s on your mind; I wrote it to tell you how to win. It’s fine to have religious convictions and no one can ever take them away from you, but it’s also one of the quickest possible ways to offend the sensibilities of that one judge who doesn’t agree with or looks down on your religion. Once again – it may not be right, but it’s true. You don’t have to disavow any religious convictions you might have, and it’s not that you can’t make any reference to them at all — it’s just a safer route not to make them the crux of your entire essay.
