On a site like this, we're going to get some questions that contain assumptions we think are incorrect.
Here's an example: What were Martin Luther's main disagreements with the Catholic Church?
What's right way to handle these questions? The one I cited was voted to be closed. I think closing it was a wrong decision. Refusing to address the question left cut off an opportunity for somebody to teach. (In this case, the topic was the role of conscience and free will in Martin Luther's ethics.)
Sisters and brothers, with any luck we're going to get plenty of seekers here. We'll get trolls too. To what extent should we give people the benefit of the doubt?
My answer to my question: let us act with charity and hospitality. Let us be polite to strangers, just as we would in our places of worship.
Let's be as hesitant to close questions as we are to chew people out by name from the pulpit.
