Hmm …

… Michael Arditti: why I write fiction about faith | Books | The Guardian. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

I think there's a bit of terminological confusion here. Faith, religion, and church are definitely connected, but are by no means identical. And when we start opposing liberalism and fundamentalism, with a mention of something right-wing, then connect Jesus to Marxism (try that on the victims of the Stasi), you've stopped thinking radically (i.e., down to the root of the matter) and are settling on clichés.
