I have very little time to blog right now, as I am taking care of the Imperatrix pulcherrima Africae occidentalis after her ACL reconstruction surgery. I offered to perform the surgery myself with a rubber band and a corkscrew, but she insisted on having a "real" doctor. She is recovering well.
I just wanted to point out an interesting article I came across on a possible re-evaluation of the figure of Judas Iscariot. It raises some interesting questions, questions that have always haunted theology. The question of God's mercy vs. God's justice. If Judas did not betray Jesus, then there would be no crucifixion, so in a way he was fulfilling God's plan for salvation. Yet, if he were only a tool for that plan, that raises problems about free will. Food for thought.
