Why Tolerate Religion?
So I came across this provocative scholarly treatise by a professor at the University of Chicago: Why Tolerate Religion?

The first chapter is available for free and is concerned with first dissecting and analyzing the term "toleration" and its various forms and manifestations. In particular the difference between toleration as a practice and toleration as a principle. It's a nice tight scholarly exposition and well worth a read. I know I came away with a far more nuanced and subtle understanding of the term.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Read some summaries, seems interesting, bookmarking the free chapter to read it when I can fully assign time to it.
