Religion = Contentment?

On The Today Show this morning Vatican spokesperson Cardinal John Foley was asked: "What is it that Pope Benedict wants Americans to know as he begins his visit here?"
Cardinal Foley answered without hesitation: "He wants everyone to know that religion is a source of peace and fulfillment. It brings happiness and contentment."
Really? I thought religion was something you "cling to" along with "guns" and "antipathy toward those who are not like you" when you are filled with "bitterness."
Thanks, Cardinal Foley. I'd have never known.
