Ah, Kat! You are with Unity! You may know my friend, Elizabeth Ellis, the storyteller, who lives in Dallas.

Joe Campbell on a tape from some PBS special series talks about his differences with one rabbinic theologian. According to Campbell, the other guy got upset at some of Campbell's questions, which dared compare some Asian practice with his own.

well, yes, said Campbell - compare - that's what I do: comparative religion.

Unfortunately, on the same tape he told a Rabbi joke. I had a funny feeling about that, and I'm not Jewish. He may have been being testy. His work is SO important to storytellers I give him the benefit of the doubt.
