    “Why should I respect the brotherhood of man when I do not accept the Fatherhood of God?” Very well stated.

    On a side note, I remember reading Sayers as part of a high school class on social justice, and thinking at the time that she and the class were so much thinly-veiled socialist claptrap. Having since had my ignorance informed by Church teaching (with GKC as the gateway), I now look back on that class very fondly.

    Speaking of Sayers, has anyone round these parts seen Gaudy Night at Taproot?

      No, but I just finished “The Nine Tailors” on my Kindle. Loved it, and the mystery was almost secondary. It was a wonderful portrait of the type of small, rural English community Rod Dreher would have idealized.

    Ah. “The Nine Tailors”! Thanks for the reminder, as I had had it in mind a few days ago to look up some info on change ringing!
