    at how defiantly non-Christian commentators make such statements with assurance.  What in the world does the "Official Party Line" mean for Christianity?

    I've never heard of it, although I'm married to an Episcopal rector who also has a PhD in religious and medical ethics.  She has studied Greek and Hebrew (as well as Spanish, Russian, and Chinese) and Jewish religious ethics (and with it the Talmudic tradition).  Her dissertation focused on narrative ethics, so she's also highly attuned to text, author, audience, and the dynamics of power among them.  So, no, she doesn't believe any claptrap about inerrant translations.  

    If I as a Christian made a claim about what all scientists believe -- or all biologists, or all archaeologists, or all of any subspecialty no matter how small, I suspect you'd laugh me off the thread for daring to generalize so superficially about a rich, complex, contradictory set of individuals.

    Hell, take a look just at the two most recent popes, then tell me how all Christians interpret their faith the same way!

    A 47% return on investment--that's pretty doggoned good!
