A Protestant who likes Pope Benedict
LRC’s Charley Reese gets it and in that site’s fashion his criticism cuts across both the left and the right. (Whether it’s low-class, new-money flash or SWPL nice things, stuff is stuff as George Carlin understood.) But excommunication is not a ticket to hell; the church is not declaring the person hellbound. It’s meant for the person to repent and come back.
Christianity may well wither and die in this current flood of secularism. If so, it should die true to its roots. Trying to pander to people who hate it won’t save it.
‘Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world’ means somewhere on earth not necessarily Antioch, Carthage, Paris or Hull.
