Lay UU Does Public Theology
Speaking of UUs doing more public theology, as we were discussing recently at Philocrites and PeaceBang...
Are all religions other than Christianity false? Should they be tolerated in our society? Who decides?
UU newscaster Keith Olbermann weighs in here.
I agree with Olbermann's position about religious tolerance, which it seems obvious to me is informed by our own UU emphasis on the necessity of free personal discernment, but I wonder if his mockery of John Gibson's discussion of Christianity isn't a little unfair. If so, is that only Olbermann's own grandstanding or is it also a common UU trait?
