Dagens Rorty

”There is hypocrisy involved in saying that believers somehow have no right to base their political views on their religious faith, whereas we atheists have every right to base ours on Enlightenment philosophy. The claim that in doing so we are appealing to reason, whereas the religious are being irrational, is hokum.”

- Richard Rorty, Philosophy and Social Hope (London: Penguin, 1999). s.172
