I remember saying something similar about being a Methodist once. Back when I was young and stupid.
I don't know, an awful lot of episcopalians seem to share that opinion.

I think by the time he asked her straight out why she'd come, it was probably better to go ahead and tell him. (I wonder if the "What's that supposed to mean?" was partly an attempt to dodge via belligerence.) No matter how oblivious she might be to anything else, I'm guessing she has figured out b...

If I learned that my home was on ground sacred to Native Americans, I'd start looking for a new one. In fact, sometimes I toy with the idea of moving out of the U.S. just to live on unstolen land. Okay, that may be hard to find, but I'd settle for land that wasn't stolen in the last 500 years and n...

The Ladys probably got word of this and were there to shut it down. As for Beltane and her Coven, I say, "Just say no." There's respecting another's beleafs, and then there's letting a worship of something toehr then your God in the home you sleep, eat, and live in. In the US, you're pretty much re...

Re: You're jerking my chain

And no one pointed out this to him or the former owners because....? ;) Perhaps it's simply not true? Just because a coven holds a belief does not make it gospel truth. They are known to just make stuff up in their myth making efforts, exaggerating the age and falsifying the provenance of modern wi...

Hm... The Frog Mage has never seen a human... How does he know that this is a human child? Size? Do they have pictures of humans, showing the differences? It makes sense that an educated mage would know this, while the swamp folk didn't. The kid looks very thin, and may be starving. This wouldn't b...

Technically, J.A.M., the trial was on shaky legal ground; to wit: If it was an American trial, it would have to wait until after cessation of hostilities; otherwise, it would be an abrogation of legal powers. If it's an Iraqi trial, the "crimes against humanity" charge for which he received the dea...

Just a small note to temper the glee. If he doesn't repent before death, this is generally one you put in the loss column, not the win column. Saddam's execution is cutting our losses in anticipation of further negatives, not a genuine victory. It's as necessary as poop scooping and just about as j...

You are right on spot by proving me wrong with a google search. Problem is, we dont hear them, read them or see them on tellie. If we have to google them and read lenghty scientifical essayes in a foreign language, it nets to "not here". Of course, it is wrong to say they arent here at all - at lea...

But you are right, Christian practice and teachings arent that up-to-date for me. And even if i still was going to church all the time, my view of Christ might be different than yours, because you live half the world away, and probably in different branches (sects) of Christianism (Christiandom?). ...

In Mexico, I don't think I ever met a Jew in person (a few times, and only near the US border), much less heard the term "Christ killer" (except in a Spanish movie, which I saw when I was 25, I think). Maybe there aren't that many Jews around here to begin with (Inquisition, anyone?) to actively di...

No argument here. I've always disagreed with "reverse discrimination", which is simple discrimination. I've never advocated blocking Nativity scenes but putting up menorahs, etc. All I've ever advocated was that if you're going to put up a Nativity or Christmas tree, that you ALSO include a menorah...
