Trust Issues: Responding to Our Cultural Authority Crisis

In his book The Last Word, atheist philosopher Thomas Nagel, talked about “the fear of religion”: “… I don’t mean to refer to the entirely reasonable hostility toward certain established religions and religious institutions, in virtue of their objectionable moral doctrines, social policies, and political influence.
