ReBlog: The Sins of Others

A thoughtful, humble response on the Eddie Long scandal on the blog, Again and Again. Actually, he quoted from another priest, Father Ted, off of his blog.

One quote:

In the book In the World of the Church, Paul Evdokimov notes:
Berdiaev [Nikolai Berdiaev, a 19th century Russian religious and political philosopher] stressed with reason that the Gospel is infinitely more severe toward wealth, exploitation, and social disorder than toward any sexual failing. The real problem of social obligation has been repressed and replaced by a veritable obsession with matters sexual, even up to our time.  According to the Gospel, it is the rich who will not enter the Kingdom, while repentant prostitutes enter ahead of the righteous and their influence.  ( pg. 87)
