Faith Silencing Reason

If I could only read one Op-Ed columnist for the remainder of my days it would be a difficult task to choose between Paul Krugman and Robyn Blumner (albeit a task made infinitely easier thanks to the Times Select wall to which I refuse to capitulate - unless subscriptions were to be made 'by columnist').

In her latest column, Robyn comments on Pat Robertson's declared visitations as well as the ubiquitous pass given religiousity in our society. She does so by way of a book review of sorts - commenting on and including excerpts from Sam Harris' Letter to a Christian Nation. A good read.
