Well, if everything is always and will always remain the same, then it shouldn't really be necessary to pour cold water on those who dream of change. They'll come to the truth in their own good time, as sure as water flows to the sea. Indeed, for some people, dreaming of the possibility of change could be what's keeping them in the church. I don't see what harm there is in it.

Wow...I'm feeling Right On just thinking about it. Homeless people will be able to sleep better on the streets and in shelters just knowing they are able to temporarily absolve young progressives of their liberal guilt. Of course, they'll have to be careful of what they give as penance. Who knows how many other homeless bishops will be more willing to loose than bind?
Unless I missed it, no one was talking about "liberal guilt" or anything similar. So, that is irrelevant to the subject at hand.

God = love.
Otherwise, things are not just black or white.
