UU Carnival # 7: Atheist prophets

In order to get more participation in the carnival, I’m asking for submisssions, on any topic at all.  The only catch is that you need to be responding, in some way, to this quote from James Luther Adams:

A good deal of so-called atheism is itself, from my point of view, theologically significant. It is the working of God in history, and judgement upon the pious. An authentic prophet can be a radical critic of spurious piety, of sham spirituality.”

From the submissions we receive, I’ll choose the best representatives of UU blogging, as usual, and we’ll have them online by Friday February 9th.

Here’s how to send in submissions.

Quote taken from “Prophetic judgment and grace,” responses to questions, January 1977, quoted from George K Beach, ed., The Prophethood of All Believers, (1986) p. 57.

    What about the possibility of pulling out of Iraq, letting Iran invade and lose resources fighting their own kind,
    and then come in and mop up the dregs?

[…] Since I’m planning to preach soon on the integrity of atheism, I was tickled to see that the UU Carnival topic this month was prophetic atheism, based on some remarks made by our great theologian, James Luther Adams:https://uucarnival.wordpress.com/2007/02/05/seventh-uu-carnival-topic-atheist-prophets/ […]
