Odd Phrase at the Dawn Patrol
I noticed an interesting phrase in Dawn Eden's discussion of the resemblance between the Theology of the Body and Jewish tradition:
At the wedding reception, I approached the rabbi and complimented his sermon. Then, remembering Dennis's optimism in the Theology of the Body's revolutionary power, I told him about the theology—and how impressed I was to see that there was a parallel in Jewish teaching.The phrase “his interpretation” sounds like it was excessively pro-choice. She couldn't even use my standard response.
In the course of describing the theology, I used the word "pro-life." As a result, the rabbi thought I was asking him about abortion—so he responded with his interpretation of Jewish law on that subject. (A detailed exploration of the topic is available on aish.com.)
