I’ve just finished a complete revision of my chapter – the last – in Criticism of Theology. It’s on the indefatigable Tony Negri, from whom I have gathered some choice morsels:

‘What a sublime and, at the same time, sordid vocation this theological discipline has’.

Now, the relation the Left has stabilised with religion consists in continuously winking on the sly at superstition’.

‘The problem of salvation is all the more important for those who have been Marxists’.

‘In general, the biblical texts have always been extremely important for me.’

‘Religion is a big rip-off in itself, but it can also be a great instrument of liberation’.

‘Even the old God of Genesis, not at all inclined to benevolence, was satisfied with his work’.
