I attended an interfaith open forum the other night. It was dreadful. Six panelists, ostensibly members of six different world religions, all nodding their heads in agreement with absolutely everything every other panel member said, no matter how blatantly contradictory the various statements were. They called themselves tolerant. I think Dorothy Sayers had a more accurate label: slothful.

The sixth deadly sin is named by the Church acedia or sloth. In the world it calls itself tolerance, but in hell it is called despair. It is the sin that believes in nothing, cares for nothing, seeks to know nothing, interferes with nothing, enjoys nothing, loves nothing, hates nothing, finds purpose in nothing, lives for nothing, and remains alive only because there is nothing it would die for.
