Oh, the unmitigated, self-justifying, tortuous twaddle these idiots spout.

"most theologians are reluctant to pronounce anyone beyond repentance and salvation"

They're reluctant? How sweet of them! How considerate that they would wriggle and squirm to find ways to put a direct statement in a "context" which permits them to claim it means not what it literally says (whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven), but what they would like it to mean.

I think these theological buffoons simply can't handle rational, critical thinking. It's too damned scary for their tender, craven spirits. They're much more comfortable squeezing "truth" out of a collection of words by hunting down ambiguities and alternative interpretations so that the "truth" becomes what they feel it ought to be.
