Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Response to Comrade Grumpy (Reply #79)

Fri Aug 3, 2012, 06:07 PM

90. The conclusion being...

That whether something issuing from "religion" is "good stuff" or "bad stuff" can only be evaluated in a framework other than a religious one.

Clearly, since you assert that religion can be responsible for either "good stuff" or "bad stuff", you cannot use religion to determine whether it is, in fact, "good" or "bad" stuff.

And this is what galls me about this species of discussion. The measuring stick against which we determine whether some religion-motivated thing is "good" or "bad" is thoroughly humanistic. So, look, let's skip the religious part and get right down to humanistic "good stuff". It would seem to be a more direct route.

But, seriously, regardless of the views of a handful of nuns in the US, are we going to seriously debate whether the Pope is, or is not, properly deemed a "Christian"?
