To everyone in the discussion, on all sides, the people involved in this issue are people first: not a law, not a theology, not a sin, not a debate. They are people. And this is personal. So the best thing we can do when faced with people issues is look through their eyes. Stand on their ground. Learn their language. Experience their pain. And summon their courage. Only when we do this will we be ready to engage in dialogue that pleases Jesus.
There have been more people to walk on the moon (12) than score an earned run against Mariano Rivera in the postseason (11)!!!

“But what if our real job is not to give to those who are poor but to help create a world where the poor do not exist?
“What if the Church should be less concerned with making saints than creating a world where we do not need saints? A world where people like Mother Teresa and MLK would have nothing to do.”
-Peter Rollins, “Insurrection”
“It is in experiencing the license of grace rather than the legalism of prohibition that real transformation becomes possible.”
