    If religion adds value to my life, and philosophy adds value to others (and possibly yours), why not let me believe as I wish? Why try to bolster your own convictions (that there is no god) by trying to diminish or dismiss the belief that there is a God? My opinion can coexist with your opinion without having to be “renamed” to justify your opinion.

    "My theology-related goal was to convince people that whether you call it theology, philosophy or a search for values, it matters how we look at the world and what we care about," the Rev. Mix said.

    Agreed.

    So let's stop calling it "religion" and "theology" and just call it philosophy and a search for values and ethics.

    Just another implicit confession that religion doesn't ultimately add any value...

    The bloom is off the rose in Austin, the most progressive town in Texas.

    High tech, music, state house, cosmopolitan citizens...and now, bombs on the doorstep.

    What perfect timing for a globalist article about a festival in town.

    I am glad a Sikh was able to speak. Usually, the Mus Mob pushes them out, since they have been at war for centuries. However, despite wearing turbans and knives (usually unsharpened and merely decorative) for religious reasons, they are very compatible with Western Civilization in culture and moral outlook. They make good, conservative American citizens, and were a large part of the reason so many Asian-Indians voted for Trump.

    But, I think the real story at SXSW was Steven Crowder and "Louder with Crowder" being suspended by Youtube and Twitter for a factual, accurate, and newsworthy video they posted. If it is a fact, it is fact, and not hearsay or calumny as Leftists would have you believe.
