Comfy Christianity

Archbishop Timothy Dolan warned of a Christianity "that makes no demands, calls for no sacrifice, asks for no conversion, entails no battle against sin, but only soothes and affirms." We might call that "comfy Christianity". Today's sermon is from one of the most uncomfortable passages in the New Testament, Jesus' hurtful words to the Syrophoenician woman who came to him begging for healing for her daughter. A comfy Christian avoids this passage or neuters it, but our faith demands that we include this, as well, in our notions of what it means to be Christians.
