I just recently discovered a great blog called Suddenly Christian, by author John Shore. He’s thoughtful, funny and interesting, and he has a lively comments section. I’ve added him to the blogroll; I’ve also added Scotteriology and James’ Thoughts and Musings, who I’ve been reading for a while.
In any case, John wrote a good post questioning the way many Christians adamantly insist on a “literal” reading of Paul’s rejections of homosexuality, while explaining away Jesus’ condemnations of wealth. He sparked a spirited debate, near the end of which one of his commenters quipped:
I have tried to find the passage of scripture that says, “Blessed are the ones who think they are smart enough to tell everyone else what’s right or wrong about themselves or what they believe,” but I have struck out thus far. I think it’s in 2nd Hesitations.
