To be sure, in many cases, discussion is a valuable thing, but dissent is not an end in itself.
In fact, when it comes to faith, dissent can be the end – the end of everything... forever.
Hear the word of the Lord to his disciples in today’s Gospel (Luke 10:13-16):
Whoever listens to you listens to me.
Whoever rejects you rejects me.
And whoever rejects me
rejects the one who sent me.
