The Dangers of Religious Certainty

A follow up to my posts on christiano-fascists here and here. Courtesy of Andrew Sullivan, I found this moving commentary by Dr. Jacob Bronowski, who lost many relatives to the Nazi death camps, on what "men do when they aspire to the knowledge of gods." It should be sobering to all Christians and Muslims who may be tempted to think they are in possession of all truth, that God is in their corner, and that it is their mission on earth is to impose the Kingdom of God over all creation.
