Interesting Around Blogtown

January 25, 2008

Carl McColm has an interesting post and comment debate regarding Contemplative Prayer, Spiritual Maturity, and Conservative Catholic Doctrine. I found it to be an illuminating exchange, but then, I’m very airy fairy, loosey-goosey about such things.

Dan, over at Culture Choc has up fa good decontruction of a medical myth in the making as it related to the spread of MRSA in the gay male community. He’s says: BULLSHIT. I say: AMEN!

Meanwhile, That Evil Lesbian Priestess (TELP) Elizabeth+ has a VERY controversial and interesting conversation about the room for polyandry in the Christian tradition and how monogamy is likely a social construct whose main aim is to support patriarchy.

And, if you’d like to take on class issues and church, head on over to Nina’s Dancing Through Doorways, where she has a couple of great ones up.

And just to through in a gender issue, Missy is exploring the Roman Catholic Churches teachings on women’s ordination and asking, Why? Where does it say? How can it not be an issue of social justice?

Enjoy some heavy Friday blog reading.

    Hi Eileen, thanks for your list. I just howled reading “Dancing Through Doorways.” I’m used to people looking at me with a faint air of superiority in department stores. That should not be the norm in church, for crying out loud.
