A Little Backbone, Please?

A brave or at least pugnacious high school-age Englishwoman is going to court to stand up for the Christian faith this summer. Aren't we finished with scapegoating the Way, the Truth, and the Life yet?

"The darkness of mythical origins give way to more decorous forms of befuddlement and self-deception, those of philosophies and ideologies. There is a sophisticated darkness of modern knowledge that is continuous with the darkness of mythology, and it is fitting that it would rely more and more on mythological expression, on the Oedipus myth, for instance, that may well be the myth par excellence of our post-Christian and neo-pagan confusion." - Rene Girard [via Cornerstone Forum "Quote of the Day"]
