re: Boykin's remarks

I understand u are being emphatic here... now, stop repeating that time and over! :)

As impressive as ur definition seems, I really am not able to see just what the basis of this claim is. In deed, you seem to be talking abt polytheism, rather than idolatory. Idolatory, to me, is the simple acceptance of the fact that the glory of the Ultimate is also capable of residing in (in)animate physical objects, and denial of this is, in fact, demeaning the Ultimate. Yes, this argument does give a more-than-abstract nature to God (shorthand for the Ultimate). But hey, is not God not be of that quality too?
