Debate at City of God rages on

At City of God the battle of words wages on. On one side, John, Dan, and Poserorprophet (a.k.a., Dan O.), who want to allow gay marriage and adoption. On the other side, others of whom I have been the most outspoken. I maintain that Poser is preaching a different gospel because he writes that the poor are a part of the Church by virtue of their poverty; Poser wrote:

I wouldn’t necessarily say that “the poor [are] incorporated into Jesus, the Messiah” but rather that Jesus, the Messiah, incorporated himself into the poor. Therefore, there is now an indissoluble and sacramental link between the poor and Christ. By choosing to identify with the poor, the marginalised, and the damned, Christ revealed to us that these people are priests, administering God’s presence to the world. Not only that, but Christ reveals to us that God has chosen to locate himself in and amongst the poor. … [snip] This means that the poor are counted as members of the Church, even if they verbally deny Jesus and assert that they do not want to follow him.

John responded regarding my comments at City of God:

Here is a comment worthy of consideration:

“P. W. Dunn has continually exploited Porp inasmuch as he has accused him with charges which Porp would never concede to as intentionally executing. His interpretations have often been irresponsible (given his education) and simplicitic; He has cognizantly incited people to anger and has continued to be largely and ignorantly intolerant of other people’s views. When his arguments fail to succeed he subtly abuses his interlocutor. He accuses people for things which he also is guilty, especially the so-called propagandic techniques.”
