Another sober and balanced perspective on the Deal Hudson affair is now available on the Catholic exchange site.

Oddly, the Crisis magazine site remains silent on this story.

    I pray that the following will continue to do the work of defending their Faith. Phil Lawler, D. Bettinneli, Deal Hudson, and Carol McKinley. I also pray that all is forgiven by each. God Bless

    Deal Hudson has not remained silent. Christ's Church provides we sinners with the ability to repent and be forgiven. Deal Hudson has done this. God has forgiven him. We do not need anyone else. We should pray that he will continue his work which has been for the common good.

    There is a huge difference between sodomite facilitating clerics and Mr. Hudson: he knows he did wrong and publicly admitted it. For that I will forgive him - not just once, but seventy x seven times. For the princes of the pink palace (and those who defend them) who deny and obfuscate and rationalize away their perversity I offer scorn and contempt - all forms of "tough love" meant to shame them into doing what common decency would require.

    I forgive you, Deal.
