Stephen Prothero was on the Colbert Report to promote his book, “God is Not One,” and spoke to why the world’s 8 dominant religions are all important to the life of the world.
Personally, this perspective is a breath of fresh air after recently getting another figurative earful of a bunch of blogosphere/Facebook anti-religion rants that did little more than offer the same old set of nails scratching the same old chalkboard. I’ve decided to leave all these well-intentioned folks to their own crutches, since just about everyone I know winds up limping down life’s road in one way or another. And I suppose it’s a matter of finding where I fall on the spectrum between creeds and screeds, which seems to be much closer to the former than to the latter.
