It seems to me that the God-community has gotten themselves into a corner of their own making. They have trained their flocks well in believing what they hear. Now they hear the da Vinci Code ideas and the flocks have little in the way of critical thinking skills, so are confused or think they’ve encountered a little enlightenment, and, whooo-hoo, your basic christian leader has a wee thought-rebellion on his/her hands.
And it’s all their own darned fault, since they fostered a culture supporting an absence of and abhorrence of critical thinking.
Indeed, is this also a major problem with many public schools, too? The lack of emphasis on critical thinking?
