The Blog of Daniel

The Episcopal Diocese of D.C. has started a blog of Daniel to deal with the attacks on not just the show but also on the church from other, well, competitive sects. I see this via Daniel (no relation) Radosh. I love this post from the church’s blog about comments left there by people calling themselves Christian:

I am always struck by how entirely those who claim to know Christ are betrayed by the self-indulgent quality of their rhetoric. Many of this morning’s posts are far more offensive than anything you will encounter tonight on “Daniel”–not because of what they say, but because of they way they say it.

It is always bracing to be told one is going to hell, that one’s Church is the tool of the devil, etc., and while I appreciate many of the poster’s seeming concern for my soul, I wish they would show similar concern for other people’s feelings. It is possible to tell someone you disagree with them strongly in a way that allows them to hear it. Give it a try, eh?
