I personally would again like to ask where you would draw the line of what is and isn't respectable, a question you hadn't answered. It seems that if we were to place the statements "hurt no body by word nor deed," "be true and just in all my dealing," and casting a person "as an Heathen and Publican," next to one another, you would embrace all three statements equally, and in the process of your embrace erase the latter two. If we must "love" be "just" and also "hate" (or excommunicate), you say we must acknowledge contradictions and therefore just love. This doesn't do justice to the text at hand. I think we are much more justified in looking at writings in context, as I hinted at in my initial reply. In our postmodern context it would be wrong to "hurt no body by word nor deed", as our apostles and fathers did just that. The Catechism's meaning, of a different context, is altogether compatible with doing "just dealing" (which can be hurtful to others), or calling some men "Heathens and Publicans" (which is hurtful by definition).
