Not Wishy-Washy -- Sightings (Martin Marty)
In this week's edition of Sightings, Martin Marty, who continues to offer words of wisdom (as a good historian should) about matters involving religion and society, introduces us to a new effort housed at the University of Notre Dame, and led by his former co-author/editor of the Fundamentalism Project, Scott Appleby. The word "wishy-washy" as used here his reminder that the way forward to peace in the world doesn't meant that people of faith should half-believe and half-practice their religions. Instead, the way forward involves principled engagement. This effort may be one important way to move forward. I invite your attention to his words of wisdom.
