    The newest of the great religions

    The newest of the great religions

    I don’t usually post bumper sticker photos that have appeared elsewhere, but this one was sent by blog friend Bruce at Where Are My Keys and seems particularly ironic in light of Obama’s speech last night.

    Which of the world’s great religions depicted on this version of the iconic Coexist bumper sticker seems most out of place?  (Hint, it’s not Islam, Judaism or Christianity.)

    I prefer this version of the “coexist” theme:

    Most out of place? Its a tie between Obamism and hermaphrodism.

    Actually this isn’t at all anomalous. At least for many American Jews I think Norman Podhoretz is quite right–their religion is in effect liberalism, their Judaism malleable and when it comes in conflict with liberalism, forgotten. I don’t doubt that for many other Americans liberalism is the operative religion.

    There’s a difference between that and the other religions, of course. The others require some things to be taken on faith–I don’t happen to think Allah dictated the Koran but I have no objective way of proving that to a pious Muslim. I have certain ideas about Judaism that are also not really verifiable.

    But liberalism does make certain claims about the nature of society, the nature of man, and the effects of its ideas that are subject to empirical evidence and in the main are refuted by actual facts. So the faith is in spite of the evidence, not outside it.

    LOL, treating The Lightworker as if he’s a great religion or something! I have to admit that I’ve been an infidel regarding this one and proudly so from day one of Anno Obamanus.
