Such suffering is beyond human ken.
Two highlights so far - a distrubing look at where proto-Westianism took Eric Gill (not for the faint hearted), and a patient look at an infuriating subject, West's Apology for Pornography, in which Mr. Stilwell makes the admirable observation ...
Here's a question: Is it possible to keep talking about "the human body" without having to concede at some point (indeed, at some point very early on) that "the human body" must be this or that human body - in other words, the human body belonging to this or that particular person?
Stilwell also points out that the dignity of man resides in the Human Person, not merely in the Human Body - a point West obfuscates.
I know a lot of you want me to shut up about this. But of all the heterodoxies I've battled on this blog, I personally think this one is the most pernicious.
Why? Because ...
* Torture Defenders do not personally torture anyone.
* Lying Apologists are probably no more honest or dishonest in their everyday lives than Critics of Lying.
* But Westians are changing their behavior - to the detriment of their souls. For example, under the cover of a serious misreading of Bl. John Paul II, good and sincere and devout Catholic college kids are now openly obsessing about sex on campus and congratulating themselves for their spirutal maturity in doing so.
In my mind, panty raids are more spiritually mature than this.
West's mistaken theology has, it seems to me, done more harm than theological mistakes on torture or lying ever will.
