Everybody's Got One A blog. An opinion. An elimination orifice. A dream. An agenda. A past. A hidden talent. A conceptual filter. A cross. A charism (often the same). A task. A wound. A destiny. A lost love. A blind spot. A bad habit. A secret. A passion. A soul ... okay, maybe not everybody ...

Steven Den Beste argues, in the midst of a long post, that to be religious is a positive thing for an individual, but negative for a society. (I read Den Beste almost daily; even when I don't agree with his ideas or his logic, he generates thought.) But this one, I think, he has exactly backwards. No surprises there; as an atheist, observing from the outside, he has no direct knowledge of what being religious is like in a person's life - or, as a southern Californian, in a society.
