Terry Eagleton on having faith and an i-pod

Missa inte Terry Eagleton´s föreläsning Jesus and Tragedy där han bland annat avhandlar radikaliteten i kristen tro, samt pekar på det besynnerliga i att beteckna kristna som "troende".
The tortured, mutilated body of a political criminal who was done to death because he spoke out for love and justice, that this is what it all comes down to, this is it and no mistake. This is the single stark signifier of human history; all the rest is delusion, idolatry, false idealism, cheap sentimentalism. Those who can see this are commonly known as “having faith,” a terrible way of talking. It sounds like ‘having an i-pod.’
