Religious Article Of The Week
There are religious scholars that I admire who just didn't accept everything they were taught about certain religions(e.g. Christianity).

Tom Harper is one of them who writes about unorthodox subjects in his Toronto Star religious column. Here is one of his controversial statements from the title article: "The greatest duplicity lies in the fact that when the Church needed some meaty intellectual tonic in the Middle Ages, it turned to two Pagans, Plato and Aristotle. It was to Aristotle especially, the pupil of Plato, that St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) looked for the theology that was to shape his own church down to today!"

New Age Christianity didn't start with me. There were many seekers in the past who wanted a deeper understanding of "Man, Myth and Religion". Simply accepting church creeds and dogma wasn't enough.
