“Narrative accounts about how the world works are worldview accounts. Narratival worldview accounts depend on their underlying religious assumptions . . . When we step out into the world of ‘how a bill becomes a law,’ ‘how a cow becomes a hot dog,’ and ‘how Monsanto became the devil,’ we are stepping into a religiously laden debate. It is not a simple matter of ‘research’ or ‘science’ or ‘facts.’ There is no neutrality anywhere. Everyone has an agenda, not just the ‘bad guys’” (Confessions of a Food Catholic, pp. 103-104).
