  1. David Keller says:

    What a hoot. A man who really wasn’t affected by the violence of 9/11 is ready willing and able to entreat you to forgive Islamic terrorists, but daily participates in the persecution of Anglican Christians, whose only crime is wanting to leave TEC, who he declines to forgive and with whom he has not reconciled. I am pleased to be free of these hypocrites, but I wish someone still inTEC would ask him why it is ok from him not to follow his own admonition when it deals with his issues.

    I found the format so annoying to read that I couldn’t finish it. However, he started out with references to Gaza and Ferguson, which indicates his frame of thought. In the aftermath of 9/11/01 I was distressed by the attitude of my then-bishop who could see no evil other than American evil. How do we forgive people who have committed great evil and are not sorry for it, indeed, are proud of the evil? We should always be ready for genuine efforts at reconciliation and we should avoid letting hatred consume us. The key is “genuine.”
