That's odd. They're supposed to instead try and bring her to understanding of their thinking, meekly and honestly, as Christ did.
Meekly like the Jesus who turned over the money changers tables in the temple and accused them of being thieves, or meekly like the Christ who called the Pharisees a brood of vipers, or meekly like the Christ who pointed out the woman the error of her being married to five different men, or... I think you get the picture.
So many people are of the mistaken idea that Jesus was the meek, mild pot smoking hippie. No so. If he were he would have been left alone, never crucified, and dissapeared in the dustbin of history. But he wasn't. He upset the staus quo. He boldly challenged the ideas and beliefs of his day and for that he was murdered.
I often wonder how many of those who think themselves broadminded, openminded, progressive, liberal, etc. wouldn't be screaming for his blood if he walk this earth today or better yet participated in these forums.
I'm beginning to think I may have abandoned my Catholic faith a bit hastily. I've run across far more ignorant, bigoted, narrowminded thinkers on these forums than I ever did in the Catholic faith. (I'm not talking about you Doug)
