I have been following the five responses to Sister Joel Gubler’s letter regarding Catholics being refused the Eucharist (love over law), noting especially in three of them all of the laws cited which our church demands that we obey in order to be saved.

Well, aren’t we fortunate that Jesus did not obediently uphold the numerous laws of his church. He would never have been branded a blasphemer and rabble-rouser and would have died from natural causes, with private thoughts of how life could be lived in a more virtuous way, simply by sincerely loving God and our neighbors with our whole hearts.

His silence would have resulted in the religion of Christianity never existing.
