Dave Policar has been having some interesting discussions over on his journal about religion and politics, thinking about some of the same issues I’ve been struggling with. The comments and discussion on yesterday’s post were particularly interesting. Several people including myself got involved with a variety of viewpoints. There are some really tangled issues here which could use quite a bit of thinking about. We need more fora where people have such discussions, where they can take out their assumptions and look at them with a more critical eye. Reading and commenting on the discussion definitely helped me clarify some of my gut reactions. So take a look. And tell me where to find more such fora.
