Emotional politics

The fact that emotions and faith are important to human well-being is not doubted, the violence and injustice precipitated when they are used to run our societies is also a matter of historical record. The challenge for rational, skeptical, secular people is that they are trying to use evidence to persuade people who don't value evidence; a new approach is required, but it's really hard to see what that might be.
