Jordan Peterson on Orthodox Christianity

Jordan Peterson on Orthodox Christianity, by Rod Dreher. Surprisingly interesting view of life:

Peterson [who is a psychologist] is not a Christian of any sort, in case you don’t know. …

He says that in Orthodoxy, the unquestioned assumption is that life is hard, and will involve suffering, but we have no choice except to take up our cross and stagger onward rejoicing. In Peterson’s view — and I wish he had expanded on this — Orthodox Christianity captures something true about the nature of religion that has been downplayed by the West.
