"Immersion in the life of the world, a willingness to be inhabited by and to speak for others, including those beyond the realm of the human, these are the practices not just of the bodhisattva but of the writer." --Jane Hirshfield

How To Tell If You Are An Idiot

You read a science fiction novel, and decide to change your religion:
"I am dying to read it," said Sandra Adams, a 44-year-old office manager for the Los Angeles Unified School District. She said the Left Behind books inspired her to become a Christian last year. Since her conversion, Adams has shared the books with family and friends: "Somehow, God has blessed these books to reach people like me who would never touch the Bible. And I am so hungry for knowledge."
Dude! It's like the Bible rewritten for us, man!

The L.A. Times reports on the evangelical, anti-Semitic, anti-Muslim Left Behind series of novels, co-authored by Moral Majority activist Tim LaHaye.
