A Smorgasbord Approach to Religion

Saturday, January 12th, 2013

Philosopher Alain de Botton advocates a smorgasbord approach to religion, saying: “I’m aware this offends some people; there’s a criticism that religions are not spiritual buffets from which we can select the choicest cuts, but I heartily disagree. Just as with a singer you like, you wouldn’t buy everything they ever did and never listen to any other singers. Surely we can create our own playlist when it comes to culture, and also religion.”
