Bitchin’ bout Milbank

Missa inte den intressanta diskussionen i kölvattnet av Haldens kritik av föreställningen om moderniteten som en på kristendomen parasiterande heresi:
"The notion of modernity as heresy is just too easy. It places “Christianity” safely insulated from the horrors of modernity under critique, even as it give a nod to modernity’s roots in Christianity."

"This is why the more fruitful way to critique the ideologies of modernity is not to strive to go back to some premodern past when things were allegedly still orthodox wonderful. Rather it is to look back to the very particular reality of Jesus of Nazareth, whose life, death, and resurrection stands in perpetual judgment of all ideologies. And all orthodoxies."
