I’ve grown up with the lovecast, since the days of the iPod, before the commercials, before iPhones were around. I’ve learned much from Dan about human nature. I’ve appreciated the rants on the hypocrisy of political operatives and fundamentalists using religion as a cynical appeal to voters.
What I can’t get past, however, are the frequent references to God as a non-existent imaginary figure, and blanketing of the real people of faith as somehow ignorant or complicit in the rise of Trumpism.
Many people of faith are your natural allies in the struggle for social justice, equality, and peace, and against religious fundamentalism, Trumpism, and corporatism. I think Dan has met enough of these people to know that they are out there, and deserve some respect for living their faith.
