After the Deconstruction of Religion?

The Finnish scholar Teemu Taira recently did a piece for the Religious Studies Project website on what happens after we deconstruct religion, which can be found here:

Categorising “Religion”: From Case Studies to Methodology

I was the respondent for this piece and my comments can be found here:

The Deconstruction of Religion: So What?

As may be expected a rather controversial podcast followed by a rather controversial response has generated a certain amount of heat. Much of this was on FaceBook at first but the RSP team asked if we could debate on their site as such much of it is moved over and is still an ongoing debate.

You can find current responses under my response – much of this copied and pasted from FB so that it makes sense of any following responses.

Hopefully you will enjoy the discussions and controversy.
