Bishop Robert Baron gave a talk at Facebook HQ. How to argue, rather than fight about religion. Argument is the path to peace. Top tips for real, rational engagement around religious topics. Here it is!
- Faith is not opposed to reason
- Overcome scientism
- Be intolerant about mere toleration. Don’t just privatise or subjectivise religion.
- Avoid voluntarism (the overcoming of intellect by will)
- Really listen to the other person’s point of view and find something positive about it.
