Absolute Faith
1/4/2007 4:51:16 AM
Absolutely!

When someone makes an absolute statement of faith, why not respond, "Absolutely." Indeed, the more absolute it is, the better we might like it. The more mystical it is, the more we may love it, romantics that we essentially are. In this world, it is hateful action that worries us, not what someone's symbolic expression of faith might be. If symbols of faith are used to justify evil deeds, however, we say that faith is bad faith. Bad faith invariably involves the worship of objective gods who are sorry religious excuses for self-hate and mutual contempt. Bad faith has been used to justify every sort of vicious behavior. Witness the massive abominations faithfully committed by deluded peoples under the influence of insane fanatics who restrained their followers' rationality with confusing complexities and contradictory texts, then led them into Hell with oversimplified notions of Heaven in their noggins.
