The principle of Buddhism is not "every man for himself"

(In case you can’t place the quote, here you go.)

Harpers has an excerpt from The Christian Paradox, which raises some messy questions about Jesus and the role of government but also sheds light on this “Christian” nation’s odd concept of Christianity. His point is hinged mostly on the theological error made by the three-quarters of Americans who believe the Bible teaches that “God helps those who help themselves.” But more amusing: 12 percent of us think Noah was married … to Joan of Arc.
