Deloria on today’s religious situation

“The religious situation today eloquently reflects the American psyche – we create our own reality and we are absolutely free to do so. This condition, however, suggests that there is no reality and that we live in a completely intellectual world where the free choice of the individual determines the values and emotional content of experiences. We are at ground zero religiously with little possibility of a revelation to enable us to move on.”

– Vine Deloria, Jr., God is Red: A Native View of Religion, 58-59
