What we need

The prospect of a better way has been the vision of many religious thinkers.  But this vision of redemption has rested on the flawed premise of dogmatism, that others must share our theological beliefs in order to rise above brutality.  This premise presupposes the opposite of what we seek:  inequality, that others’ views are inferior, that ours alone are correct.  We need a better way toward a better way.  What if we were, instead, to presume equality?  Where would that lead us?
