An article by Michelle Goldberg in Salon.com pointed to this sermon recently delivered by Rabbi Eric Yoffie, which is brilliant. He says what needs saying better than I ever could:Though I'm a person of no particular affiliation religiously -- I attend Quaker Meeting, but mostly because it's a good place to be agnostic -- I do believe that religious teaching and faith can be a positive force in the world. I also believe that there is a progressive consensus among many different religions, and that it's time for people who partake in that consensus to storm the moral high ground, and unseat the pretenders. |
UPDATE: For those not interested in his comments relevant mostly to the Jewish congregation, skip to Section V.
