I'm not an inveterate Dowd fan, but pretty glad she is out there writing away.

I haven't read today's column through yet, just a skim with a certain amount of glee. Others will view it with consternation.

The column -

There are 222 comments. I look forward to reading the rest of the column and the pros and cons in the comments.

@chai2,
Well, yeah, that too.

This is a little painful and funny at the same time for me. As an early teen, I was proto-scrupulous, trying never to accept impure thoughts, for example. I read a magazine my parents got, The Liguorian, published by the Redemptorist priests, to get to the "sex column", which was all about occasions of sin, vague but ominous.

The questions bring that all back, egads. Doesn't seem as if anything has changed since 1956. Well, of course not.

I still haven't read the article comments yet - should be interesting.

@ossobuco,
So, now I've read about a third of the comments. Interesting, I like people's stories.

Computers now mediate between man and God, maintaining the ability to forgive sins, and remote record your sky TV at the same time. Are you watching atheists? and yet claim there are no miracles. Looketh to your phone and SEE!
