this is the problem

An interesting interview with the Bishop of Rochester (in England), Michael Nazir-Ali. Read more here. He has grasped the problem by the root:

"In the House of Bishops on Friday, they were passing resolutions that affect the Anglican understanding of marriage at the deepest level without theological debate," he said.

"It is not only what was done but the way it was done. It was so serious that things like gay bishops are just an interesting footnote."

So true. The aging hippies learned their lesson in propounding their "theological argument" for the priesting of women. It went something like this:

"Women can be lawyers and race car drivers and presidents; therefore women can be priests!"

Fr. WB: you are on a roll, in fact, you are on fire.

I don't think there's been a single post that I could disagree even mildly with for the past couple of weeks, esp. this one.

Maybe you should do all blogging when you are tired!
