Many of us here have been exposed to Abrahamic religions that encouraged literal belief in the various legends and fairytales. I can't help thinking that "religion" is a rather broad brush here -- especially since Ethical Culture considers itself a religion, albeit one that has nothing to do with gods or other spooks.
I've read the opinion that the advice of the Wiccan Rede -- "An [i.e. if] it harm none, do as ye will" -- requires critical thought in evaluating consequences and being responsible for one's actions, more than a list of "thou shalts" and "thou shalt nots".
Thanks to Patricia for introducing me to this! It's not just Christianity...
