"[W]ith such clarity as I have, I must say I am not a Christian. For the situation as I see it is that in spite of the abyss of nonsense in which we are caught, we shall all alike be saved."
-- Soeren Kirkegaard, as quoted by John Updike in "The Fork"
"Is the Christian situation so desperate that the primary task of the contemporary theologian is one of creating a fortress of faith which is unapproachable by the world?"
-- Thomas J.J. Altizer, in
Towards a New Christianity
