The faith I was born into formed me. I come from a missionary family – I grew up in China – and in my case, my religious upbringing was positive. Of course, not everyone has this experience. I know many of my students are what I have come to think of as wounded Christians or wounded Jews.
– Huston Smith
But you see, our society is still trapped in this binary, black/white logic and that has had some very positive implications for our generation.

– Henry Louis Gates
