Wow. Interesting article.Stuart Macdonald, the prof interviewed in the article, is actually a friend of mine. Great guy, great guitar player, and can actually almost drink me under the table! We've had good conversations about religion, me being the token atheist.
You know that all those children of anti-religionists become evolution-rejecting, born-again fundagelicals, don't you?
As Peter Beyer puts it, Protestants leave their churches and don't go anywhere else. With Catholics, nobody leaves the church but no one comes.Interesting choice of words.
If that were America they could go to the faith based initiatives and get a free handout.
Guess this didn't work.
"... a cultural and spiritual derangement still not fully understood."Cultural and spiritual derangement? That seems a bit hyperbolic, even if you accept the basic premise that institutionalized religion is a good thing. Personally, I would go with cultural and spiritual maturation.
