Julian Baggini thinks "the God wars" have become stale, and need to be freshened up - he's going to say how next week.

"What's needed to clear this issue up is to think through where the boundary lies between legitimate strong belief and dogmatic fundamentalism. There clearly is such a boundary, but by talking as if there were none, religious ultra-liberals and agnostics (the "fluffy brigade" as I affectionately call them) manage to make it look as though the only reasonable position to take in this debate is one where the sole passionate commitment is to a lack of passionate commitment."

I'm sure dhw belongs to the fluffy brigade.
