In the Observer yesterday, Richard Harries, former Bishop of Oxford, agrees with Richard Dawkins that morality is possible without religion.
That's why most of we atheists don't spend our lives murdering, pillaging and raping.
So, well done, Bishop.
'But then you go and spoil it all by saying something stupid like':
"........there is a fount and origin of all our moral insights which is good, perfect good, all good, our true and everlasting good. For a Christian, this is above all shown in the willingness of God to enter the flux of history, to redeem it from within."
Forget the Platonic absolutes in the first sentence. Try getting your head round: "the willingness of God to enter the flux of history, to redeem it from within."
Or simply marvel once again that an intelligent man writing a mostly sensible article can suddenly come out with this kind of meaningless gibberish.
