Myth Visited and Acknowledged

In typical Sunday fashion, Andrew Sullivan tackles issues of faith. My favorite quote of the week:

The Christmas stories in the Bible - and they are multiple and contradictory - are obviously myths. They are obviously not to be taken literally.... If only contemporary Christians could let go of the literalism in pursuit of the far more extraordinary fact of the Incarnation.
Now this is something I could get behind, though not as an explanation for why Jesus was the Messiah.
