No comment yet from the ABC?Posted by: Sara MacVane on Saturday, 14 March 2009 at 8:23am GMT
Ethics, I suggested, is about negotiating conditions in which the most vulnerable are not abandoned.The reduction of pain or of frustration, the augmenting of opportunity for human welfare and joy - again, these are obviously good things. They are good because they connect with a sense of what is properly owing to human beings, a sense of human dignity.But the task is to turn people's eyes back to the vision of a human dignity that is indestructible. This is the vision that will both allow us to retain a hold on our sense of worth even when circumstances are painful or humiliating and sustain the sense of obligation to the needs of others, near at hand or strangers, so that dignity may be made manifest.
Adrian, the silence is shocking. The ABC is one of the most baffling public leaders I've known. Is the fabric of the Communion precious above all, above the humans in the membership of the Communion? I want not to think as badly of his silence as I do, but I'll need help, enlightening, something. Throw us a bone, Archbishop.
