Maggie Dawn drew my attention to a new blog called freethinkingfaith which looks interesting. The first entry was entitled religious preferences and contained a thoughtful list of preferences that the blogger felt would make religion (or I guess Christianity), more appealing to them. It was hard to find fault with any one particular point and for most of them I found myself in rather strong agreement. However, I was left with a sense of unease because taken as a whole, the preferences seemed to leave little place for focussed thought on doctrine, or for sustained theological reflection. Maybe there is more of systematician’s impulse left in me than I care to confess, but a religion that does not allow a place for extended and precise theologising is not appealing to me.
