Suppose Jesus had simply made the Good Samaritan disappear.  That would
have been easy enough, and even if Jesus didn't, the Gospel writers might
have done the same thing; and who now would know?

It is not our job to decide whom God may or may not love.  It is our job to
proclaim that God loves absolutely everybody.  Any lesser claim diminishes
Christianity and reflects ill on those who claim to be Jesus' disciples.

Pity the Lambeth Conference for selling its Christian birthright for a mess

Don't ask God to forgive you your trespasses as you forgive +Gene's unless
you are prepared to live with the consequences.   Be sure that you love
your lesbian and gay neighbor as much as you love yourselves.

   Stalin liked for people to disappear. Those he purged actually did
   vanish in a very real physical sense because he had them executed, but
   they also vanished from memory by being erased from public

   This idea was nothing new. Egyptian pharaohs had been chiseling out
   the face of unpopular or discredited predecessors thousands of years
   before Joe Stalin took the hint. .....
