Leonardo"s Notebook by Mattheus Mei

I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.

QOTD: Spiritual Rights

The archbishop must know that it is theologically inappropriate, theologically false, to divide human beings into spiritual and material parts. Where people's human rights are trampled on, one cannot speak convincingly of a respect for people's spiritual rights.
- William D. Lindsey, Bilgrimage

Another worth reading piece over at Bilgrimage where he 'fisks' the arguments of the Archbishop of San Francisco who admits his role in getting the Mormon Church, i.e their money, involved in the Yes on 8 campaign.
I wrote a piece the other day about the cloudiness of the church's language when it comes to homosexuality and the obfuscation of what it means to give them 'dignity,' 'respect,' when they're 'objectively disordered,' and suffer a 'condition.'
