PRAYING FOR CIVILITY

The Washington Post has invited several people to be regular contributors to its "On Faith" Web discussions on religious issues. Phil Davis, the Christian Science Manager of Committees on Publication, is one of them.

The Post wrote: "We have entered what columnist Kathleen Parker calls'a political era of uninhibited belligerence,' that is finding expression in sermons, at town hall meetings, on radio talk shows, even on the floor of Congress—especially when we differ. Why are people so angry and belligerent, and so willing to express their anger publicly? Why has our civil discourse become so uncivil? What does this public anger say about our private faith? What should we do about it?"
