From Dwight at A Religious Liberal Blog:
This was a quote I gleamed off of Fr Jake’s site. It identifies a problem with the drive to conformity that the right seeks. “Any insistence to agree on everything sounds like a call to build a new “Tower of Babel.”
In the story, unity of language and purpose led to pride, with the people patting themselves on the back for being so smart. (So) God decided to destroy the tower and to confuse our language in order to keep us mindful that only God creates anything of lasting significance.
Differences remind us that God alone is sovereign – not you, me, theologians or doctrines. Divergent ideas and actions, even heretical ones, will not destroy us, our faith, or Our Lord. But they will lead us to ask more questions, find new answers, correct old errors…”
