Why I Write

“Whenever you feel fed up with life, start writing:  ink is the great cure for all human ills, as I have found out long ago.” (C.S. Lewis)

I started this blog to record my thoughts and engage in conversation on a variety of topics: God, the Church, Life Issues, Sexuality, and Media Blindness.  As a convert from the Evangelical faith, I became Catholic in large part by arguing my way towards the Faith.  I realize that a certain  joie de combat will flow from my writing because, well, I love to argue.  I am not one to mull something over endlessly and only pronounce it once it’s absolutely air-tight – the very act of engaging other minds through argumentation is the way I prefer to think.

That being said:  please comment, link, and share – giving credit where it’s due.  Argue, challenge me, and above all ask fantastic questions.

Comments are subject to moderation: Please attempt to be Charitable, not merely “polite”.  Assume the best from others and from me.  This is not that my Ego is fragile, but rather I have found that healthy debate and conversation rather are.  Angry arguments can be found with startling ease on the net – I would prefer this site remain quite unlike the Whopper – that is, flame free.  If you don’t know the person you’re responding to, pretend it’s your grandmother.  Unless, of course, your grandmother was a nasty wench who beat you.  Well, you get the idea, right?  Good.  If you feel I have failed to live up to this standard, please point it out as specifically and quickly as possible.

This world is a tangled mess, but I’ll do my best to show you how I’ve navigated it to get where I am.  I expect you’ll come up with some things I’ve missed along the way, and we can both get to a better place together.
