Looking For It

I have to wonder about some of the St. Blogetariat. A bit of a furor over “nakedness” here. Aside from a deceptive post title, “Get naked this Lent with Richard Rohr,” the author seems to have forgotten a classic Pauline message of comfort:

What will separate us from the love of Christ? Will anguish, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or the sword? (Romans 11:35)

The author confesses:

I really don’t go looking for this stuff.

Sure seems like it, taking a fairly well-known Scriptural allusion out of context. I hear there’s a Catholic charities board in Boston defying their new cardinal-in-waiting. Why not go over there to play?
