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.
