Moralistic therapeutic deism

Moralistic therapeutic deism is a term, first introduced in the book Soul Searching: The Religious and Spiritual Lives of American Teenagers by sociologists Christian Smith and Melinda Lundquist Denton. The term is used to describe; the book is the result of the research project the "National Study of Youth and Religion". The author's study found that many young people believe in several moral statutes not exclusive to any of the major world religions, it is not a new religion or theology as such, but identified as a set of held spiritual beliefs. It is this combination of beliefs that they label moralistic therapeutic deism: A God exists who created and ordered the world and watches over human life on earth. God wants people to be good and fair to each other, as taught in the Bible and by most world religions; the central goal of life is to feel good about oneself. God does not need to be involved in one's life except when God is needed to resolve a problem. Good people go to heaven; these points of belief were compiled from interviews with 3,000 teenagers.

The authors say the system is "moralistic" because it "is about inculcating a moralistic approach to life. It teaches that central to living a good and happy life is being a good, moral person." The authors describe the system as being "about providing therapeutic benefits to its adherent" as opposed to being about things like "repentance from sin, of keeping the Sabbath, of living as a servant of a sovereign divine, of steadfastly saying one's prayers, of faithfully observing high holy days, of building character through suffering..." and further as "belief in a particular kind of God: one who exists, created the world, defines our general moral order, but not one, personally involved in one's affairs—especially affairs in which one would prefer not to have God involved."The remoteness of God in this kind of theism explains the choice of the term deism though "the Deism here is revised from its classical eighteenth-century version by the therapeutic qualifier, making the distant God selectively available for taking care of needs."

It views God as "something like a combination Divine Butler and Cosmic Therapist: he's always on call, takes care of any problems that arise, professionally helps his people to feel better about themselves, does not become too involved in the process."The authors believe that "a significant part of Christianity in the United States is only tenuously Christian in any sense, connected to the actual historical Christian tradition, but has rather morphed into Christianity's misbegotten stepcousin, Christian Moralistic Therapeutic Deism."CNN online featured an article, "More Teens Becoming Fake Christians" on Kenda Creasy Dean's 2010 book Almost Christian: What the Faith of Our Teenagers is Telling the American Church.. She writes, "The problem does not seem to be that churches are teaching young people badly, but that we are doing an exceedingly good job of teaching youth what we believe, that Christianity is not a big deal, that God requires little, the church is a helpful social institution filled with nice people…" She goes on to say that "if churches practice MTD in the name of Christianity getting teenagers to church more is not the solution.

A more faithful church is the solution.... Maybe the issue is that the emperor has no clothes." One criticism of moralistic therapeutic deism is that it is more of a general worldview than a religion or theology in itself. The above-mentioned moral concepts of MTD are not unique to any particular religion or spiritual practice, they can, however, be seen as principles extracted and generalized from orthodox Christianity, but devoid of specific doctrines about God and humanity. A second criticism is that the term is tendentious rather than descriptive, since, as the originators admit, "no teenager would use the terminology'Moralistic Therapeutic Deist' to describe himself or herself"; the term is applied to denigrate a set of beliefs less traditional than one's own. Damon Linker suggested in a 2009 blog post that moralistic therapeutic deism, while theologically "insipid", is "perfectly suited to serve as the civil religion of the differentiated twenty-first century United States", a contention, disputed by Collin Hansen, Ross Douthat, Rod Dreher.

Benzeneselenol

Benzeneselenol known as selenophenol, is the organoselenium compound with the formula C6H5SeH abbreviated PhSeH. It is the selenium analog of the simplest phenol, the related thiol thiophenol; this colourless, intensely malodorous compound is a useful reagent in organic synthesis. Benzeneselenol is prepared via the reaction of phenylmagnesium bromide and selenium: PhMgBr + Se → PhSeMgBr PhSeMgBr + HCl → PhSeH + MgBrClMore so than thiophenol, benzeneselenol is oxidized by air; the product is diphenyl diselenide as shown in this idealized equation: 4 PhSeH + O2 → 2 PhSeSePh + 2 H2OThe presence of the diselenide is indicated by a yellow coloration in most samples of PhSeH. The diselenide can be converted back to the selenol by reduction followed by acidification of the resulting PhSe−. PhSeH is seven times more acidic than the related thiophenol. Both compounds dissolve in water upon the addition of base. In organic synthesis benzeneselenol is converted to its conjugate base PhSe−, a potent nucleophile.

Benzeneselenol was first reported in 1888 by the reaction of benzene with selenium tetrachloride in the presence of aluminium trichloride. The compound is intensely malodorous and, like other organoselenium compounds, toxic
