Coming late to an important conversation

I'm a week behind in blogging this, but no matter. The Decembrist: The right question about religion...maybe asks:
why it is that the current flourishing of religious faith has, for the first time ever, virtually no element of social justice? Why is its public phase so exclusively focused on issues of private and personal behavior? Is this caused by trends in the nature of religious worship itself? Is it a displacement of economic or social pressures? Will that change? What are the factors that might cause it to change?
The comments and the trackbacks are well worth reading. Here's the question for my readers: Is the situation any different in the Jewish community? TrackBack
