Christendom Review

Bill Luse is a contributor to a new, handsomely designed website (a clean well-lighted place) called Christendom Review.

Here are the opening lines from the poem Gnostic Seminar:
The harmless, homespun checkered tweed
With piped lines as thin as cross-hairs,
The call to order, and democratic beads—
The faithful have no more need to fear
Mystery’s sharp, untutored ills;
The scandal is on the velvet,
And the scholars mean to kill
Every horrid accretion and lunatic tenet,
Passing for the gospel taught by Jesus...
