    I'm glad you can see through that charlatan. Why can't you see through certain other ones?

    Like Cardinals Cupich, Dolan, Wuerl, Mahoney?
    The USCCB organization?
    Mr. McCarrick?
    The Jesuits?

    Oh,there's a long list in Holy Mother Church. We'll collapse upon ourselves and emerge a smaller, stronger Church.

    In the end, I hope we all get a Hapsburg burial.

    They became academics. Therefore they're heretics.

    Seems legit.

    Doesn't help them in the BPL

    In the 2001 census, Brighton and Hove had the highest percentage of citizens indicating their religion as Jedi among all principal areas of England and Wales. (Wiki)

    We're exporting our hate.

    A survey of under-18's in the LGBTQ community (in South Korea) discovered that almost half - around 45% - have tried to commit suicide.

    It's not just conservative churches pushing that line. Being gay in Asia has always been frowned upon culturally. But churches certainly aren't helping.

    Before I came out, I was willing to travel to most anywhere, pending finances. Now I have to wonder if my destination is friendly or not.

    I need to give it to Hope Church here in Holland. They're holding on to their "open and affirming" status, even though the Reformed Church in America is threatening to kick them out.

    Shocked but impressed. RCA is not well known for their tolerance. Suspect they will be an independent church within the year.

    Based on friends in that denomination, LGBT acceptance and affirmation will probably cause the RCA to split apart. Right now, I understand there's three groups: the conservatives who won't change, the centrists, and those who want to be open and affirming. It all depends on what the centrists want.

    Like the denominational splits over slavery.

    There are two kinds of people:

    Conservatives change their ideals to hold on to their rituals. Liberals change their rituals to hold on to their ideals.
