"What's Our Story?"

I'm working up to writing something about politics, about which I've been procrastinating since I started the blog more than a year ago.

For now, this, from Doug Muder, to which I was led by nagoonberry. Both are worth another read.

  1. I read some material today by and about Doug Muder. Don Berg critiqued the UU WORLD piece Doug is most noted for, LIBERAL RELIGION AND THE WORKING CLASS thusly: I suspect that this portrait condemns us to failure before we even start by emphasizing the false idea that we have an inherently superior perspective over people of "lower" classes and conservative theology.
    The wikipedia entry on Unitarian Universalism states that politically conservative UUs point out that neither religious liberalism nor the Principles and Purposes of the UUA require liberal politics.

    I suppose a good starting point could be commenting on the reviews of George Lakoff's MORAL POLITICS: HOW LIBERALS AND CONSERVATIVES THINK. Lakoff purportedly said on October 27, 2003 that "Liberals don't get it. They don't understand what it is they have to be doing."

    We all have to deal with competing world views, not only of those of my brother in law, a ditto head, and one of my brothers who likes David Ray Griffin's take on what brought the towers down.
