I'd really like to read the editorial he mentioned (I agree with it based on his summary, sight unseen). But I couldn't find it.

We’re not there to be educators all the time,” Johnson says. “If I’m in crisis, I’m not going to want to be educating you. That’s not what my role is in that moment."

Yes, yes, yes: well done.

An interesting read, and something I look forward to studying more about in the future. I find it interesting to look at how religions and other groups view their past, and how it informs their present. We all look at the past through our own personal, cultural, religious, and societal filters and schemas. Sometimes we are aware of what they are, more often we are not.
