An interesting interview of writer Madeline L'Engle, at msnbc.com:

Many people see faith as anti-intellectual.
Then theyre not very bright. It takes a lot of intellect to have faith, which is why so many people only have religiosity.
[...]
What are you against?
Narrow-mindedness. Im against people taking the Bible absolutely literally, rather than letting some of it be real fantasy, like Jonah. You know, the whole story of David is a novel Faith is best expressed in story.

If the Bible is not literally true, does that mean we dont need to take it seriously?
Oh no, you do, because its truth, not fact, and you have to take truth seriously even when it expands beyond the facts.

Heh.
