Quote from: Dan Fienen on August 25, 2007, 02:22:38 AMAs I see it, there are three questions that can be discussed: (1) Is it appropriate for the church to comment on current situations and suggest morally correct understandings and courses of action? (I, by the way would say yes.) (2) Was the ELCA statement on the mid-East conflict factually accurate? (3) Is the theological paradigm applied to the conflict Biblical and appropriately applied? The last two question I do not have the answers for.Dan

He is a consumate poltician whenever I hear him talk. WHat his own convictions are I do not realy know- at least I think I do not since I believe he is always very careful about his words. Maybe it is best if we left him the space and privledge to do his tightrope act the way he knows best.
