A fascinating analysis of the typological thinking that defined the historical outlook of the Jews for many centuries, and an explanation of why the Jewish people has the image of itself as that of a people forever on the verge of ceasing to be. But the bad is not always the worst. To prepare oneself for the bad without preparing oneself for the worst: This is the spiritual challenge of a liberal order. [MetaFilter]

A very fascinating article, and it shows why peace will never be possible as long as people’s view of the world is distorted by ancient beliefs & prejudices. Inflexible, fundamentalist religious beliefs are the cause of all of the world’s problems today. Religion needs to evolve along with the changing world. So what if certain religious die out? Many religions have died out in the past.

On the other hand, I admire the Sunshine Cathedral, a Metropolitan Community Church (MCC), for their acceptance of other religions. Their spiritual hero for this week is Rabbi Baal Shem Tov (1700-1760), founder of the orthodox Hassidic sect. If every religion could be that accepting, the world would be much closer to peace.
