If we were on the TV show "The View" one of our "Hot Topics" this morning would be "Reconciliation." On this site, my reflections on reconcilitation last week generated some VERY interesting comments (from both "sides of the aisle" ... and Fr. Jake's May 12th Reconciliation Reality Check is up over 200 comments.
Meanwhile, over on Drell's Descants -- where Brad's reflections on the Reconciliation Seminar just held in the Diocese of Western Louisiana started the conversation going -- this is but a sample of the high quality of reconciling comments being posted:
"... if you are “progressive” then by definition you are faithless and apostate. This is not a matter of opinion, mine or anyone else’s, but of objective fact. If you are gay, support gay ordination or the gay lifestyle, then you are not a Christian, and will go to hell. Again, this is not opinion or a matter for conjecture: it is simply what the bible says. It is fact. And unless you are willing to truly accept that fact, and to live on the basis of it, then you are right: there is absolutely no point in your attempting to reconcile with any Christian. None at all.
