Fundamentalists all!

On KQED San Francisco's Forum, Michael Krasny interviews Alan Jones, dean of Grace Cathedral and author of "Reimagining Christianity: Reconnect Your Spirit with Disconnecting Your Mind"

Dean Jones makes some very interesting points:

  • "One of the tragedies of our culture is that we live in a fundamentalist culture. And by that, I don't mean ... just religious fundamentalism; I mean atheistic fundamentalism, scientific fundamentalism. An age which is devoid of metaphoric, poetic, mythical ways of thinking."
  • "...the monk who influenced me most said the opposite of faith is not doubt; the opposite of faith is certainty..."
