John Shelby Spong, the ultra-liberal retired Episcopal bishop, attempts to justify some sort of religion and/or spiritual entity, after essentially verbally destroying Christianity and any traditional theism, in this essay, and many others.
How can an educated person use reason and evidence to destroy theism and then come up with promotion of such non-evidenced drivel? The human mind can compartmentalize so easily.
Frankly, this man is an atheist but will not use the term. How many others are like Spong, atheistic in function and attitude, but use unproven concepts of spirituality as a cover?
