What Bible does Santorum read, anyway?

What Bible does Santorum read, anyway?

Even since he took half a step back from comments made over Barack Obama’s “phony theology” – pinning it on radical environmentalism – fallout continues over Rick Santorum’s remarks about the President and the Bible.

James,

As long as you contrast "liberal" w/ "God" (and not "liberal" w/ "conservative": two HUMAN opinions), there really isn't any room for dialogue here.

If we discount the Bible as something less than God-breathed, then we cease to believe in Christ.

Is that the "royal" 'we'?

If not, you exhibit some pretty astonishing arrogance...

Eric,

As I said, you have to believe in the Bible's authority to use it. Otherwise, it's false to refer to it period.

Richard,

Truth-telling is only considered uncharitable by those who refuse to accept absolute truth. I don't take any of this stuff personally because I know that it's all against God and not me. I've weighed carefully all the other interpretations, but most liberals totally dismiss the Bible with ad hominem arguments. I am not persuaded by those who don't view the Bible as God's authoritative revelation to us. That's a sinner's understanding of the Scriptures.

I know the NRSV uses "sodomite", which reflects a conservative view pertaining to Sodom and Gomorrah.

I think of Isaiah 58 verse 4 is appropriate today.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
