      One has to admire her determination, even if (as I am) one is somewhat conflicted about her goals.

        I love nuns. They are perhaps the single greatest force for good in the history of the church.
        βλέπομεν γὰρ ἄρτι δι᾿ ἐσόπτρου ἐν αἰνίγματι, τότε δὲ πρόσωπον πρὸς πρόσωπον
        ἄρτι γινώσκω ἐκ μέρους, τότε δὲ ἐπιγνώσομαι καθὼς καὶ ἐπεγνώσθην.

        אָכֵ֕ן אַתָּ֖ה אֵ֣ל מִסְתַּתֵּ֑ר אֱלֹהֵ֥י יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל מוֹשִֽׁיעַ׃

          You're just trying to make me agree with you again, aren't you?
          Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

          I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

            I am well past being concerned with agreement or disagreement, OBP. That has little to do with you, and much to do with my bitterness towards humanity as a whole.

                My sense of humor is every bit as missing in action as is my desire to be liked or agreed with.
