      I'm a reformed Catholic, so I've examined things very closely from both fronts. It's obvious to me that Luther's reformation brought things back to where they should have been in the first place, placing all belief in the inspired recorded Word of God (directed towards Kelper) and not human traditions and human opinions. It's too bad the Pope didn't see the wisdom of what Luther was advocating.

        Hey, the Pope's got his rice bowl, too.

        Sola scriptura means goodbye to 2000 years of gold-leafed lard. You can't just ditch Holy Mother Church. It's good for jobs!

        It's good for art and architecture, too. If you're gonna believe in an invisible man, you might as well get some pretty stuff out of it.

          Thought-provoking article that makes me want to look at the source material, which is not something I would say about 99.99% of the books re: "Biblical archaeology" (which are typically just exercises in tub thumping by the Kook of the Week).

              Nope. But if it's Michener I'll bet it begins with 800 pages describing the beginning of time.

                80 pages. . Very good historical fiction around an archeological dig in Israel pre 1967 war.

                If you have dead time (during the Philadelphia convention), sit down and read it.

                      A few of the more wackadoodle parents did this when I was in school. In all honesty, none of us particularly cared either way, though I remember their kids were pretty embarrassed and probably smoked a few extra joints those days to relax.

                        Re: Religion Thread: That's Me In the Corner...

                        I am the very model of a modern ultramontanist
                        I’ve been congratulated as an excellent dialogist
                        I have degrees from all the best colleges of theology
                        I do not know quite what it means but I reject ontology
                        I understand the finer points both nuanced and theoretical
                        and when I go on twitter Ross Douthat calls me heretical
                        I’ve many sage remarks to make on what I call the Christ event
                        and just how many tragic deaths forbidden condoms could prevent

                        I much prefer to shun the works of any scholar scholastic
                        I find the very concept of forgiveness rather elastic
                        in short, as such an erudite and excellent dialogist
                        I am the very model of a modern ultramontanist


                        I’ve listed all the ways the church might deepen its humility
                        I send my kids to Jesuit factories of gentility
                        I’ve quoted bits of Newman and I’ve memorized my Bernardin
                        and when it comes right down to it I couldn’t name a mortal sin

                        I keep my Rahner library in an embossed ciborium
                        I purchase all my pinafores at a fair trade emporium
                        I sing a new church into life with quite a catchy guitar hook
                        And whistle all the airs from that infernal Haugen hymnal book


                        Then I can write decrials of a medieval mentality
                        and open letters calling for civil collegiality
                        In short as such an erudite and excellent dialogist
                        I am the very model of a modern ultramontanist


                        In fact, when I learn what’s meant by “abbot” and “episcopal”
                        When I have clearly understood why Mass precludes a disco ball
                        When I distinguish easily dissent from sensus fidei
                        And when I know the diff’rence twixt a rose window and rosary
                        When I can sing the Salve like a dutiful Gregorian
                        When I know all my heresies, Arian and Nestorian
                        In short when I have exercised my understanding to the full
                        A better ultramontanist never bestrode a papal bull


                        For though my theologic bent is bounded by this century
                        I’m of a temperament so fearless, plucky and adventur-y
                        You must admit that as an erudite elite dialogist
                        I am the very model of a modern ultramontanist
