On July 11, 2016, I was privileged to read my “Poem on Blind Faith” at the United Nations Chapel, in my role as an interfaith minister, as one of the guests at an interfaith program organized by Guruji Dileepkumar Thankappan.  (Text of poem follows link to video.)

by Herbert H. Stein

“The ego which, on the one hand, knows that it is innocent is obliged, on the other hand, to be aware of a sense of guilt and to carry a responsibility which it cannot account for.” (Freud, 1926 p. 117)

Robert Eggers’ film, The Witch, is described in its full title as “A New England Folk Tale.” It is presented as a 17th century horror story, based on the commonly held beliefs at the time, of a family destroyed by demonic forces in the woods around their home. Read the rest of this post »
