I was on the road all day and behind in my reading.
This post and its comments fit with the cartoon above.
Faith is not about jots and tittles in books, nor about men’s and women’s judging and condemning other men and women, though many seem to build their faith on the condemning of others.
It is not about living narrowly, emptily seeking justification in contrasting one’s own virtue with the unspeakable failure of the [insert condemned group here].
It is about oneself, not about others.
It is about living charitably and justly.
To the extent that one’s faith is contingent on the disparagement of others, one has not faith.

It’s probably a good idea not to try to sell it in a public forum:
An 18-year-old Maryland teen was arrested this week for allegedly stealing a University of Delaware student’s car and listing it for sale on Craigslist.
Craig Cunha, of the first block of Peach Road in Elkton, was charged Tuesday with one count of felony theft and conspiracy, said Newark police spokesman Lt. Brian Henry.
Then, again, maybe he thought it was his own list.
As I write this, I wonder about the “conspiracy” charge. Can one be charged with conspiring with oneself?
They all bit the dust after I retired for the evening. Quite a body count.
Ahh, the geniuses of the fee hand of the market.

Wilmington Hospital employees taking a break eating lunch got a big surprise today when a deer wandered into the cafeteria at noontime . . . .
Wilmington Hospital is in the heart of downtown Wilmington, adjacent to Brandywine Park, shown here under water.
You know the deer are desperate if they want to eat in the hospital cafeteria.
There about three helicopters buzzing around over the Delaware River this morning. The last time I woke up to this, some fool had driven off the interstate onto the Amtrak railroad line, ruining a lot of commutes.
Updates when the sun comes up.
This may be it.
Why they need three choppers to look at a collision I don’t know.
My brother sent me a text saying there is a missing boater on the river.
It was probably the boater. The boat was found just down the hill about a mile upriver from me.
Mithras reports that President Obama went to Dover to salute the fallen and points out that Bush never went to Dover.
Bushes, in fact, tried to hide Dover.
Holy ten to twenty, Batman, we can’t hold them accountable because they are “too privileged to prosecute“!
. . . But I like the results:
. . . the Phils defeated the New York Yankees in Game 1 of the 105th World Series, 6-1.
Aside: I have a friend in the western, that is, the Yankee side of Connecticut. She text messaged that she’s wearing red to the office today to irritate the Yankees fans.
I’m not a big one for rubbing it in, but, since Yankees fans are at least as irritating as (and much more smug than) Phillies fans, I said, “Go for it.”
Parts of a house get awfully dirty in 24 years.
More news from the Sanfordized state:
Corning, who is a former state legislator, left his job with the (South Carolina) attorney general’s office after he was pulled over Monday on suspicion of illegal activity. When he was pulled over, Corning identified himself as an employee with the attorney general’s office and was not charged with a crime.
He had an 18 year-old-
girlwoman, one of those drugs you keep getting spam about, and at least one BOB.*
He did not reportedly have any hiking shoes or a compass for his Appalachian Trail.
Aside: This wouldn’t be news except for all the Republican “family values” hypocrisy.

To Bishop E. W. Jackson Sr., homosexuality is sin, and he needs to preach about it. That’s why he fears new legislation that puts sexual orientation under hate crimes protection.
“We could find ourselves in a situation where we’re accused of inciting someone,” Jackson said of pastors who oppose homosexuality. “I am categorically opposed to the hate crimes bill.”
Just what type of sermons does he preach that he thinks will incite listeners to violence? Don’t sound like a rather well-know sermon that was given on a mount.
Inquisitorial minds want to know.
