« A Poetic Geometry of the Holidays (by Jenny Factor) | Main | what the hecht i'll post the links [Jennifer Michael Hecht] »

December 24, 2008



I believe Father/Rev Tad is a bit (so tempted to use a pun here) out of touch with modern reality here, his own and the world's; not only are we obligated to pay proper heed to scientific advancements but use them to benefit all of mankind. For example, if there are men and women suffering from grave diseases and maladies and they are in great need of medical assistance, is it not ethical to alleviate their pain with the help of scientific improvements in the medical world? Inasmuch as the Catholic Church encourages or preaches tolerance it seems that they are quite the opposite, intolerant, of those that are non- practitioners of their church and catechism. It seems quite obvious that the Vatican is fine with remaining Draconian in theory and practice.

Landslide victory for you Jennifer.

left the house
