Soccer Explains the World...and Seduces the Church

In a delightful book, "How Soccer Explains the World"
(how we need to view
the world through different metaphors, and creative lenses...especially if they create "holy synesthesia

a delightful (!?) and helpful phrase shows up:

"the soft porn of sects":

When we are overly sectarian, and bound to our bounded sets, we almost inevitably cave in to the temptation to sexualize/seduce (and thus "thingify"/ reduce) others.

(related: T.Bone Burnett can explain everything...even without soccer.)
