Hugo - Having the good fortune to ride with some WWII Veterans on the DC Metro today (in advance of the WWII memorial dedication), I'm grateful for that generation of Americans (and some other nations' citizens also) to whom I believe we owe a profound debt of gratitude.

Hugo

Indeed. Even the pacifist within me can respect the sacrifices of that generation; I would only note that the thousands of Mennonites who worked in alternative service (in some cases, losing their lives fighting fires, for example) are equally worthy of honor and gratitude.

Thanks for putting your heart in the right place! :)

I wonder if you saw Fr. Neuhaus's comment:
"It all sounds so good-No one is excluded, but everyone, (conservative and liberal, apostate and orthodox) can gather together around the Table. Except of course those who thought the point was to gather together in Truth".

Love you Hugo (I'm an ENFJ too!) but John's comment pretty much says it for me. For me, Christ and Christianity were/are 100% inclusive of people. But I see nowhere where it or He are or were inclusive of counterscriptural social ideas.

Not that this is the appropriate format for the age-old debate, but I see love that's not in truth as something not lasting, or at least not as worth having.

John

Amen. C S Lewis said that love without Truth ends up being very cruel.

Hugo

I'm with both of you -- I'm just not convicted that homosexuality is, in practice, antithetical to truth. Or maybe I just try damned hard to have it both ways.

Thanks for the link. The timing was perfect, as Mrs. Xrlq's pregnancy has not been easy. Baby Xrlq is fine, which is all that will matter in the long run.
