What An Atheist Thinks Of “Interfaith”

This from Lee Shelton’s blog “Contemporary Calvinist” made me laugh – and think:

Atheist professor Paul Zachary Myers on the popular term “interfaith“:

I concur with Ophelia Benson: “interfaith” is a code word for the religious clubhouse. It’s used to exclude secularism and promote a unity of faith, any faith, where it doesn’t matter what BS you believe, as long as you really, really believe. I think we ought to rename the ideology of all those people who cheerfully and indiscriminately embrace every faith without regard for content as “tinkerbellism”.

Finally, an atheist who makes some sense.
