A deeply Conservative writer explains how Williamson's perspective speaks to the spiritual needs of a wounded America, mirroring, oddly enough, Trump's appeal. If you can set aside the name-calling and mis-representations, you'll come away with a deeply enlightening understanding of this virtuoso insight into how the far right and the far left actually meet on the other side. This may be the most important OpEd so far in the Dem debate cycle - partly because of what it actually says, but mostly for what it reveals.

Thanks for posting this, Meryl Ann. I agree with you about its importance. For years I've been convinced that the left has made a tremendous mistake in rejecting and making fun of spirituality. Liberation theology saw that 50 years ago and sparked social movements all across the Global South. Let's hope that Marianne will do something similar for the U.S.

He seems to attack lots of liberal straw men. I don't see spirituality as a left-right issue. Maybe liberals are more open to Eastern and other alternative philosophies, while conservatives are more likely to align with more traditional Judaeo-Christian practices. Maybe. And what the hell is "muh science?"?
