Keeping the "entendre" in double entendre.
I thought it was interesting that Rev. Bouman, while in one breath decrying the sarcasm of the CORE speakers, kept using the rhetorical "Are you kidding?" line. When my teen uses this line its almost always in a contemptable manner and we have to call her out on it. Had he left them out, I think it would have been a good attempt at reconcilliation. As composed, I think it only serves to maintain or, possibly, widen the chasm. I'll continue to pray for the ELCA; that Christ will heal her so that she may give witness to the cross of Christ which she seeks to profess to the world.
I think that is a valid point.
