DOXASTIC OPENNESS “If you are a person of the same sort as myself, I should be glad to continue questioning you: If not, I can let it drop. Of what sort am I? One of those who would be glad to be refuted if I say anything untrue, and glad to refute anyone else who might speak untruly; but just as glad, mind you, to be refuted as to refute, since I regard the former as the greater benefit.” —Socrates in GorgiasShare
We were at BJ’s last night having a few biers with friends. The local Catholic priest, who shall remain nameless, was eating a pizza at the bar. I thought the pizza looked delicious from where I was sitting. I asked the bartender to order me what the priest was having.
That pizza was amazing! Maybe the best pizza ever. Upon the completion of our meal I decided to go talk to the Father…..
