Ah, but you're different, Musket, far more difficult to define succinctly. In fact, there's an understanding at Mudcat that at least some of the time, there has been a Musket Trinity, three persons in one Musket.

I, too, am similar, since sometimes I'm an atheist or at least agnostic, often Buddhist, and sometimes Islamic. I suppose, though, that I'm always a Catholic agnostic, a Catholic Buddhist, or a Catholic Muslim. I think it might be best to define Joe Offer as "All Things Considered," but always interested in justice and fairplay and rooted in Catholic tradition (if not ideology).

I think it's far better to consider questions, rather than to paint groups of people with a broad brush and predict their perceptions by the labels we've give them. Still, Mr. Shaw, the one-time Catholic who probably once fit the conservative definition of Catholic far better than I ever have, seem to fall right smack dab in the middle of the "mindless absolutist antitheist" category. The man knows no middle ground.

I think I'd prefer to continue to consider all things with an open mind, and not bother holding on too tightly to any one definition of "Truth."

Sorry, Donuel. I know you want to control this thread, but Musket posed the question.
