|Zoar, where men are men and goats are clothing.|
Perhaps you have wondered about Zoar, the land that abuts the Woods, toward which you sometimes catch the Bear ambling before he disappears for weeks at a time.
Here is the Bear in his human form, along with his faithful driver, bodyguard, and factotum, Red Death. Just another misty day among the goats and crags of Zoar, where we carry livestock around and such.
IN OTHER NEWS, the Bear recently posted about divorce and remarriage being a "reverse Trojan Horse." If the meaning wasn't clear, besides the issues at hand, there is the Synod itself, which is a threat. Bishops should care for their own sees. It is bad enough that we have parasitic bodies like the USCCB sucking the money and life from the Church in America. We sure don't need bishops to organize in national voting blocks for routine synods.
If the Church needs instruction, that is in the Pope's job description. If we need a Council to deal with some great controversy, then fine (although after the last one, maybe not so fine). Synods may become the smiling face of heresy.
