Today, I read a blog (and I'm not telling you which one because it might only serve to continue the debate and that's not my point) where a writer did a beautiful piece which the faith community then took apart piece by piece, analyzing and overanalyzing it to its carcass was clean. Reading through the comments was like the old Saturday Night Live piece on Point/Counterpoint. I kept waiting for an entry that began, "Jane, you ignorant slut!" (For those of you too young to know the reference, my apologies.)
Next, I was doing a bit of research and discovered a continuing debate on the work of another nameless (for the point of this rant I'm removing all distractions such as details!) practical saint. Seems his openness and genuine concern for others is questionable . . . at least by narrow-minded, so-called-renown voices of the church who make it their business to tell everyone what the parameters of belief are.
I cringe at the growing level of my cheese factor, but c'mon, people, "Can't we all just get along?"
Why is it so important for me to feel more important by telling you how wrong you are?
Having said that, I add myself to the Culture of Argument and acknowledge that I do not practice what I am currently preaching!
I'd delete this but humility suggests that I should offer myself up for my own rebuke.
So there . . .
I'm off to chill.
