And another take on ‘tolerance’

Stanley Fish is no friend of objective truth but this article at the New York Times sympathetically teases out the gulf in understanding between western liberal thinking and those Muslims who turned to violence in Libya. It’s not enough for those in favor of keeping religion to the private sphere to say ‘they should be like us’; in fact it only shows a deep misunderstanding of a seriously religious worldview. Which is another way of saying that many ‘believers’ (of whatever stripe) in the west probably don’t have a seriously religious worldview. Ouch.
