Billy Graham’s daughter (@AFministeries) says we need religion so we can understand fear on @MeetthePress today. But is religion the only way we learn to feel and understand fear? Not for most of us, and probably not for any of us.
Perhaps the most privileged among us are so protected from fear that they need religion to teach them of it. And those of us who are less fortunate might find religion helps us understand and cope with fear. But there are certainly other sources of inspiration and understanding to learn of fear. So is religion necessary to no fear, after all?
"Not a sermon, just a thought," as the rabbi says on the radio…. Was he a rabbi? Or am I just projecting?
Either way, some grist.
