No nuance

By Diogenes (articles ) | Oct 09, 2003

Bishop Gumbleton might not approve, but the Russian Orthodox hierarchy has sent a clear message about same-sex "marriage."

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Evidently, the Russian Orthodox are not overly concerned over the reaction of "gay activists." Their postion seems to be, "Abuse our church building and we will destroy it." Why can't we have the same attitude?

    Diogenes, Did I read this correctly? They bulldozed the Church because of an unclean act? Can we rent the bulldozer? And can we have it shipped F.O.B. Los Angeles? What's more, doesn't this seem a little judgemental? Shouldn't we be dialoguing with them and verbing our nouns, using vacuous grammar instead of taking on liturgical desecration ?(oh, sorry, participation...keyboard sticking again).

    Poor Bishop Gumbleton, tarnished relic of a decaying "progressive" American Catholic Church in spite of attempts by Call to Action and VOTF to resurrect a dying ember. These groups really thought that they were on the cutting edge of change, only to find themselves left behind, with just an annoying squeak of a dull blade now and then. Though they still comprise significant numbers of priests and bishops, their influence is waning.
