Brian, in a comment at Bridging the Gap, says:
I'm reminded of one of my favorite lines from Ellen Degeneres. She was musing about the weird habit some people have of saying something insulting and then saying "just kidding" as if that somehow erases the insult. "You don't know how to kid properly," she quips, "we should both be laughing."Who defines love? Just the person claiming to be loving? Or do those who are apparently being loved have a say?
Sometimes I want to yell at the church, "You don't know how to love properly. We should both be feeling the love!"
