That old-time religion: Good stories

It will be a slow day, I'm guessing, so it's a good time to share a link to the Huffington Post where Lee Jefferson, a former Little Rock resident who now teaches religion at Centre College in Kentucky, has written a thoughtful essay on a decision in Kentucky to give state aid to a Bible-based theme park (with a religious employment test) that's the work of the same people who established the Creation Museum.

It's an essay about more than church and state entanglement. It's also about science and Biblical literalism and how good ancient stories (think the Three Magi) have evolved, so to speak, into fact over the years. This evolution, Jefferson writes, need not be damaging to the cause of either believers or non-believers.
