This quotation was posted on another listserve. I thought it very
insightful and appropriate for remembering MLK this week.


"Softmindedness often invades religion. ... Softminded persons have
revised the Beautitudes to read "Blessed are the pure in ignorance:
they shall see God." This has led to a widespread belief that there is
a conflict between science and religion. But this is not true. There
may be a conflict between softminded religionists and toughminded
scientists, but not between science and religion. ... Science
investigates; religion interprets. Science gives humankind knowledge
which is power; religion gives humankind wisdom which is control.
Science deals mainly with facts; religion deals mainly with values.
two are not rivals. They are complementary."

Strength to Love, 1963
Martin Luther King, Jr
