Recovering mediaevalist,* diaspora Scot, writer by fits and starts, probably a bit mad, but mostly harmless.

I am averse to wading into drama, but have an odd sense of humour (and have never thought that caring about something doesn't mean you can't joke about it) and a tendency to weird enthusiasms.

* In terms of what I do for a living. I've not lost all enthusiasm for it!

TL;DR: I go through phases where I put quite a lot of religious content up here, though it varies from random snippets of mysticism to liturgical squee to snark. Personally, I am left-wing and a Christian of the type usually, if somewhat inaccurately, described as 'theologically conservative, socially liberal' (i.e., I will happily sign up to the creeds, but am not a fundamentalist; though I think the differentiation between 'theological' and 'social' is actually quite unsound - it's all a consequence of your theology, in the end). As far as the current unhappinesses in the Anglican communion go: I don't believe in the ordination of gays and women to the priesthood - I believe in the ordination of those whom God has called. Their sex and sexual orientation is irrelevant.

I tend to think of myself as a high Anglican with broad church instincts, but other people tend to think of me as nose-bleedingly Anglo-Catholic. They're probably right.

Be that as it may, people of all political or religious persuasions or none are welcome. What matters is conversation among courteous people (or, you know, fannish squee, or snark among courteous people)
