I’m honored. But not really.

I have important news to announce: the University of Now Damned, the leading Wiccan university in the country, is going to give me an honorary doctorate in theology. I understand that many believe that a Wiccan institution giving a practicing orthodox Catholic an honorary degree, especially in theology, means that the Wiccans are honoring me and supporting my beliefs, but nothing could be further from the truth. They are honoring recognizing me for the purpose of dialogue. By giving one of their highest honors awards thingys to me they are in no way implying that they actually support me in any way. No, quite the contrary: by giving me this degree, they are actually engaging me in tough dialogue. I look forward to this dialogue, especially when I give my speech accepting this honor thing – a speech to which, in the finest traditions of dialogue, there will be no response.
