New non-Quaker blog: Evolt

I just started a new blog as a place to put everything I think about that doesn’t seem suitable for Quaker blog, called Evolt. I’ll write about politics and culture of all sorts there. I’ll explain the name later (there, not here). In case you’re interested, I’m pasting the text of the first post here, […]

Shorts on Quaker ecology + the Green Scare

At some point I want to follow up on the last three posts and their comments – especially taking the nontheism issue head-on – but so far, everything on this version of the blog has been primarily Quaker-related. It’s time I started adding a little g & @ to the Q.

  • It seems to me to be a major issue for the Society of Friends today whether on the whole its emphasis is to be, once more, as in the beginning, for this type of open, expectant religion, or whether it is to seek for comfortable formulations that seem to ensure its safety, and that will be hostages against new and dangerous enterprises in the realm of truth.
