Dissent

It is important to recognize dissent for what it is, and not to mistake it for a mature contribution to a balanced and wide-ranging debate. BXVI

Update. Who ticked the funny box? No-one's going to lunch 'til the miscreant owns up.

''To reverse the maxim, subordinating the standard of worship to the standard of belief, makes a shambles of the dialectic of revelation. It was a Presence, not faith, which drew the Disciples to Jesus...Their lives, like that of Moses, were changed radically by a Presence which upended all their ordinary expectations...which is why lex supplicandi legem statuat credendi.'' (Kavanagh).

'Subordinating the standard of worship to the standard of belief,' sounds like basing it in human strengths and that's gonna end badly.
