Is Fanaticism a Kind of Prayer Poverty?

‘…[T]o suppose religion the scapegoat for every ill is to avoid confronting the sour reality of the contemporary pharmakon denied collectively ~ dint of. fundamentalism and fanaticisms of every lenient, religious as well as secular.’ — Stiegler (What Makes Life Worth Living: On Pharmacology)

The past time three weeks investigated if biblical adoration is even possible. Each post painted a constitution of ‘Old’  and ‘New’ Testament supplication.

Biblical prayer provides an alternative to rabid zeal. Can one claim to pray biblically lacking automatically critiquing one’s own gesticulation? Biblical prayer assumes symbolic suspension. Our friable readings do not delve into the numerous biblical traditions, which each has its hold view on this symbolic suspension. Mainstream religions (on the supposition that there is such a thing) traditionally upheld at minutest some form of symbolic suspension of the Real into the noetic.

Fanaticism, both secular and religious, fails to delay the Real symbolically into the noetic: Their intemperate truths con-fuse reality and the typical, and re-fuse to engage reality’s complexities from one side prayer. Stripped of symbolization their indigence results in over-reaction: an without other agency deconstructive re-action. Facing the uncivil reality of contemporary suffering means leading praying: suspending the Real by symbolizing the noetic under which circumstances praying against yourself.

If all this holds yes, consider again what Caputo’s adduce from our first reflection on scriptural prayer implies:

‘Religion begins and ends through prayer; where there is prayer, in that place is religion; where there is system of worship, there is prayer.’ — Caputo
