Fighting Bigotry with Humble Truth

In the "religious vs secular divide" there is a lot of bigotry among the most ardent devotees of each camp. Between them they leave a lot of wounded people behind and just don't seem to care. Here's an excellent editorial by E.J. Dionne (Opinion Writer, Washington Post) dealing with this topic from the perspective of a lawmaker who is both a student of science and faith (which I understand completely as I fall into that camp). Please read and reflect on the following: http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/a-senators-faith----and-humility/2015/05/03/5d100290-f038-11e4-8666-a1d756d0218e_story.html

Be warned, ardent and outspoken zealots, I'll be calling you on your bigotry from now on.
