THE OUTER LIMITS OF LIBERALISM
By David Brooks
A priest friend whom I dearly love and respect offered this opinion piece for discussion. There are elements of the piece I disagree with and solid pieces too, that bring us to a center.
Life is a gift. Our ancestry is a gift. Our common history is a gift. If treated correctly, women as ‘alas, bone of my bone, flesh of my flesh’ we’d be doing well.

In correlation, a scientific piece that from another angle brings giftedness to a new level.

I gave an extensive reply but skipping that here.

My summary reply:
Remember the wisdom of Solomon.
It is one woman in desperate contradiction to herself given space to discover her true calling, mother!
Theologians ignore this most important story!!!!
Peace be with you,

Thank you and your priest friend for sharing the gift-based v. autonomy-based liberalism by David Brooks in the Atlantic.
