I’ve enjoyed the debate springing up in comments, thank you all! I have heard much brilliance, and observed these themes emerging.
- Does religion do more harm than good?
- What, if any, limitations are there to a purely secular future?
- And if there is a chance that a religion-free society would be better, should we not fight for a culture free of ancient, mystic morals?
Enter our book club’s first book. Austin Dacey’s The Secular Conscience: Why Belief Belongs in Public Life. Reviews are positive from secularists and faithful alike and so . . . who’s with me?
