Reality check

With the hullabaloo around the gay priest thing, it's probably important to keep a little perspective: Four members of the Christian Peacemaker Team, a Christian organization that goes to wartorn parts of the world to promote peace and nonviolence, have been kidnapped by “The Swords of Righteousness Brigade" in Iraq. Of the two Canadians, one American, and one Briton, only the latter's name is known: 74-year-old Norman Kember.

You know, it can be hard to figure out how to live as a Christian in this nutty world, but the CPT is definitely one damn heroic way of doing it.

Makes some of the controversy about who can be ordained and who can't seem a little self-absorbed.
