With minor editing, the following is the stunningly insightful comment I just left over on John Shore’s blog. I figured if I wrote anything this brilliant, it should appear on my own blog:
If Religion A has it right, then Religions B-Z, along with the non-religious, must be wrong, right? (This gets really scary if Religion A decides that its mission is to convert the rest of the world.) So, for example, I not only have to believe Christians are right, I have to believe they are “more right” than Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, etc? Somebody explain to me how that works.
