Hi Ad!
I am going to post this even though it
did not satisfy me...I could not quite say
what I was trying to say.
If we can stand one cliche...
"This country was founded" mainly by
Christians and post-Christians.
Fundamentalist Christians are
bringing up the rear on a religion that
is intended to be forward looking.
So many "Christians" are like Jefferson and
Franklin...they've entirely flown the coop.
Jesus works either as a religious leader or
as a transcendental iconoclast.
Paradoxically, it makes modern Christianity
look strangely diverse, while originally
the Bible and church were made to hold them
together.
I'm guessing that we don't have many folks trying to justify
Jewish or Muslim cosmology as religion because
in those religions, they're either fundamentalist or they're not really in those groups in the religious sense.
Jews and Muslims don't have to worry about
being a lost sheep. They're really not allowed
to stray except in countries founded by
modern thinkers.
Cordially,
Mike
