Sometimes True, But Mostly False

“Rather than court absurdity, however, let us graciously grant that there is indeed such a thing as unthinking religious conviction, just as there is a great deal of unthinking irreligious materialism. Let us also, more magnanimously, grant the truth of the second conviction I attributed too these writers above: that religions is violent, that religion in fact kills. At least, let us grant that it is exactly as true, as intelligent significant, as the propositions ‘politics kills’ and ‘color reddens.’ For many thing are true in a general sense, even when, in the majority of specific cases, they are false.” -David Bentley Hart
