a quickie on religious exclusivism

Exclusivism! It's not just for Christians, baby!

Today, one of my advanced students very candidly told us about how, when she was a kid, she ventured over to a Christian church out of curiosity. Her Buddhist parents found out, and her grandfather beat her with a stick and warned her never to visit a church again.

My favorite prof, Dr. Jones of Catholic U., euphemistically refers to this sort of thing as an example of "boundary issues." Heh.
