I'm sorry to have to write this to the list, but I feel it is appropriate
given what has been sent recently.
Br Alexis, perhaps you meant to say that in the medieval period it was held
that atheists often came from broken homes, and that belief in God was
somehow primarily linked with a notion of chaste love? If so, please do
share your sources with us. If not, perhaps you would want to reconsider
I beseech all members to recall the simple fact that we are meant to be
discussing medieval religion and culture.
Best wishes from my fellow list owners and me,

they can learn what chaste love is all about.
