Exploring Religious Blindness

Somewhat by accident, this month turned into an exploration of religious abuse and blindness. I found myself reading, watching, and generally thinking about the abuses of religion. An important note: the title of this post is “exploring religious blindness,” not “the blindness of religion.” Unlike many, I don’t believe that all religion is blind and abusive. In fact, I believe that the very best religion offers us a mystical humility, a flexibility of mind, and a passion to defend and speak for the abused.
