“As a factor in public and international affairs religion is having what might be its last – characteristically bloody – fling.”

    As much wishful thinking as many atheists/agnostics say religion is. “Religion” is less bloody now than its ever been. Of course, this is no comfort to current and yet-to-be victims of religiously motivated violence. Having said that, I must say that I, as a theist, absolutely and whole-heartedly advocate a secular “public square.”

    Religion is less bloody now than its ever been

    Try telling that to the residents of Pakistan, Indonesia, India, Palestine, etc

    Oxy, where is your evidence that religion is “less bloody now than its ever been”? Are you defining this by body count? News accounts?
