Self-justified Truth

"The self-justified truth claim, whether religious or otherwise, is the source of all violence" -- Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori.

This is extraordinary, this sermon. Real, important stuff (my highest rating, FWIW).

If you haven't seen it already, please take a few minutes and go to Against Faith Sanctioned Violence at the Episcopal Cafe and watch/listen to the video of the sermon, which was given during the opening services for this year's Trinity Institute Theological Conference, "An Interfaith Dialogue on Religion and Violence."
