The post you are about to read started as a Twitter thread, but the more I think about it, the more I think it should go here too. It’s going to be largely the same as what I posted there, with some modifications as I go. I am not going to take the time to highlight them, because that would be tedious, and nobody but me would care anyway.
I’m sticking this under the “blog” category because it’s where I put my less-well-developed thoughts. It doesn’t rise to the level of an actual article. This more rough-hewn; it’s me, fumbling about in the dark, knowing there’s more here to work through, but wanting to get a conversation started.
If someone more qualified than I am (which likely describes many of you) happens to see this and is moved to tackle it for the purposes of offering greater clarity to the faithful, please send it to me via our submissions page and if it’s good, I’ll publish it.
