I believe that this article is worthy of our thoughtful (not splenetic) discussion.

At the original site there are 205 comments as of this posting here; a few of these comments have real merit.

On two other lists Michael Joncas, Gordon Truitt, and J. Michael Thompson have weighed in thoughtfully. I am hoping they will post here as well so that we can benefit. I don’t believe it is proper for me to quote them without their permission.
