7. Today's discussion was excellent!
The nun was Sr. Chittester. She has written a book titled "Called to Question". I'm gonna get that book. She was great and really stood up to that pompous priest. I didn't like him at all.

Also, Rabbi Michael Lerner wrote "The Left Hand of God". He was spot-on about what's going on with the religious right, IMHO. Regrettably, his book is in hardback. $$$. Had it from the library but had to return it right away because it was on reserve.

Also, the individual representing the Islamic position was very articulate. I think he was a professor at George Washington(?) University.

Does anyone know if MTP has transcripts available?
