… and you know who you are …
Over ten years and ten-thousand posts, and it could have occurred to me earlier to post a thread for open commentary. It has also occurred to me that long discussions with fundamentalists and/or atheists don’t present the welcoming tone I prefer on the various Scripture posts for weddings, funerals, and penance.
Close to 80% of this site’s traffic is on funerals and weddings, so it seems that such folks are less concerned about why Catholics or Christians are wrong. As the coming month progresses, I will be cleaning up the comment threads accompanying many of those posts.
I wish to be clear that my intent is to make for a friendlier welcome for more of my visitors. Diligent commentators like Dick Martin and Atheist Max are welcome to comment on other posts here. Or better yet, start their own blogs. I would be happy to share the publishing of links there and here. I would probably waft over to discuss from time to time.
In the future, I would appreciate if people would refrain from making remarks on sacramental Scripture posts here if you are not getting married, planning a funeral, or seeking reconciliation with God. If you have a driving need to comment on some passage marked for weddings, funerals, or penance, please send me an email, and I’ll be happy to share my platform with you.
Meanwhile, let me state for the record that I do not hold to a fundamentalist view of Scripture. And it is fruitless for an atheist to come here attempting to crosswire an argument against God with a technique I reject.
Discuss, if you please. Continue to cite Scripture if you wish, but I’m not responsible for any levity I might feel as a consequence.
