View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Chesterton (contra Savage): Love means ...

Love means to love that which is unlovable, or it is no virtue at all; forgiving means to pardon the unpardonable, or it is no virtue at all; faith means believing the unbelievable, or it is no virtue at all; and to hope means hoping when things are hopeless, or it is no virtue at all.
-- G.K. Chesterton (Orthodoxy)

I wonder what Michael Savage would make of Chesterton?

I wonder what Chesterton would make of Savage?

I think Savage would not understand Chesterton – but that Chesterton would understand him all too well.
