    No wonder there’s an exodus from religion

    Awesome article. Hoping it will wake up some, but that'd be a miracle.

    What’s maddening about all of this is that religion has a strong case to make for itself — to the young and to everyone else — given its historical role as a prod to personal and social change and the ways in which movements for justice have been inspired through the centuries by the words of Exodus, Micah, Isaiah, Amos and Jesus.

    Conroy was getting at this in the most uncontroversial way possible when he spoke in his now-contested prayer of how “our great nation” has created “opportunities that have allowed some to achieve great success, while others continue to struggle.” If a chaplain could be rebuked for voicing that simple and undeniable truth, what’s the point of the “religious liberty” that Trump and his GOP allies celebrate?

    And when will those who advertise themselves as religion’s friends realize they can do far more damage to faith than all the atheists and agnostics put together?



    Thanks from Friday13

    I saw a tweet saying he had rescinded his resignation a few days ago but no further updates.

    No matter, still a sad situation.
