Americans: Undecided About God? Wanted Steve Jobs of Religion

NY Times Opinion: By ERIC WEINER: ….We are more religiously polarized than ever. In my secular, urban and urbane world, God is rarely spoken of, except in mocking, derisive tones. It is acceptable to cite the latest academic study on, say, happiness or, even better, whip out a brain scan, but God? He is for suckers, and Republicans.

—–We need a Steve Jobs of religion. Someone (or ones) who can invent not a new religion but, rather, a new way of being religious. Like Mr. Jobs’s creations, this new way would be straightforward and unencumbered and absolutely intuitive. Most important, it would be highly interactive. I imagine a religious space that celebrates doubt, encourages experimentation and allows one to utter the word God without embarrassment. A religious operating system for the Nones among us. And for all of us.

Editor’s Note: Perhaps Mr. Weiner can open his heart to Islam. He will discover that the Apple of Religions and the Steve Jobs has already arrived. True prayers to a loving God will certainly help, and will allow him to have a lot of fun while discovering Him.
