(12:00 AM) | Adam Kotsko:
Friday Afternoon Confessional: HellaI confess that my much-discussed problems with German appear to have been mainly Adorno's fault rather than the language's fault. I've switched to Erik Peterson as a reading text, and it's going much more smoothly. I confess that using the Super Memory software to learn vocabulary has been helpful. I confess that I probably need to get back into the habit of stumbling through a few lines of Greek every day, too.
I confess that it is way too hot out.
I confess that when Anthony told me that someone attempted to post a comment on this post of mine asserting that "100% of the verse in the Bible condemn homosexuality," I decided to start a verse-by-verse commentary:
"In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth" -- see, it doesn't say "the earth and the earth." Already, we see God's intention is to have complimentary pairings.That was as far as I was able to get. I think it's an interesting hermeneutical lens, though.
"Now the earth was formless and void" -- because of all the sodomy going on.
I confess that when this is posted, I will be watching The Dark Knight.
