@thermalsatsuma that's kind of you Neil, and insightful. Whichever way one approaches the matter it seems to me to remain a thorny conversation. I'm pleased to have found my way free of it after those many years.

A fascinating story, and I have to admit (as an atheist) that I am humbled by your willingness to tackle the issue of the Catholic Church's treatment of gay people from within by reasoned discussion rather than from without by polemic.

That is truly lovely, Nick. Two good men, to be sure.

@syzygy thanks James ;) ...I remember thinking, through the correspondence and encounter with him, that he seemed as much defeated by the situation as I was, which may have been the basis of the kindness we discovered for each other in our brief exchange.

That was a very interesting, compelling story. Cardinal Hume, eh?

It ended rather abruptly. I was waiting for the bit where as you say, he listened.. but as you left he said "But rules is rules, mate.." :/
