Stoning the Messenger...

I read this post at Catholic Exchange. Its where I usually go to get to the daily reads. The also have a mix of different articles, one of which I well worth passing on. It's entitled " Why Prophets Get Stoned

We've all heard the phrases, " Sitting on the fence", or "Taking the middle road", or maybe even, "Don't upset the apple cart". Terms which usually mean, "Don't say anything too controversial. Be excepting to all points of view. Stay in the 'Gray' zone.

I guess everyone likes to be liked and taking the safe path is a path that seems to get us there. I don't know if it's just because I'm getting older, but I seem to be more open to giving my point of view. Now I know what your thinking. I'm not one who gives their opinion on everything under the sun. I do have my views on Politics of which I'm more than willing to hear different viewpoints.

When it comes to the Churches teachings, that's where there is not middle ground. That's where you can't sit on the fence.

And that's where you may get stoned...

Dr. Marcellino D'Ambrosio has a great website: 'The Crossroads Initiative'
