But I'll hoist a Smithwick's with my USDA prime tonight, in solidarity with you being Catholic (I suspected but never dared come out and ask).
And on Creation, I'm a committed Calvinist:
And that is why original sin is called "sin" only in an analogical sense: it is a sin "contracted" and not "committed" -- a state and not an act.I think this is an important point. I believe it to be closer to "Inherited Sin" of our Orthodox brothers and sisters.
That sounds like something Anoreth would write! And illustrate, in vibrant color ...
