    Dallas Morning News, Each week we will post a question to a panel of about two dozen clergy, laity and theologians, all of whom are based in Texas or are from Texas. They will chime in with their responses to the question of the week. And you, readers, will be able to respond to their answers through the comment box. In March, we talked some about Mitt Romney and his Mormonism. But since then Romney has become the presumptive GOP nominee. This has led to a number of pieces about the so-...

    I have written before about Ramanujacarya, the great Vaishnava saint who lived between 1017 and 1137. If you look at his year of birth you’ll see that his 1,000th anniversary will be coming up in 2017. Already preparations are being made for grand events all over India and indeed the world. Today is his appearance day, so I thought I would at least write a few words. It is the measure of a man, they say, how he is remembered after his passing. And for how long. One thousand years is a...

    I think I’ve told the story about the ‘frog that boiled to death’ on this site before. On the first day he hopped into a pan of hot water and, feeling immediately uncomfortable, quickly jumped out.
