    Ergo, when Francis pontificates on political issues (such as the Trump border wall), he's not infallible.

    It's worth noting, while Francis has given lip service to more compassion for LGBT+ folks, he hasn't exactly made sweeping doctrinal changes on the matter. The way Joe sometimes talks, you'd think the guy had singlehandedly issued a landmark papal bull legitimizing same-sex marriage.

    Been awhile since we've dealt with Bob "Crown of Thorns" Gray, but yeah he regularly liked to claim Xtians were being persecuted by us intolerant progs.

    Wasn’t that 5mnMajor’s Schtick? Tim A can be f-ed for plenty of other reasons.

    5mn_major said atheists contributed nothing to society, then took the Bible out of context to prove his point.

    As an Episcopalian, I took him to task on that one.

    That was part of his routine, that and reducing the Bible to the four Gospels and disregarding the rest.

    OK, I take back the part about Timothy A then. I don't remember his shtick.

    One thing I remember about Timothy A is he was a proud Lutheran, and actually welcomed people to the Lutheran synod in his area.

    Either way, him and Bob Gray would be piling on the transphobia right about now.

    He’s Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Look up the denomination and you have him pegged - fundamentalist literalist new world sort.

    I heard a brilliant NPR show this morning in which Terry Gross interviews this woman who left the Westboro Baptist Church family. Fascinating, smart, deeply ethical, difficult.

    Maybe he finally got together with his dream girl, Jan Brewer.

    I'm just happy to be part of a church where I'm not only welcome to worship there, I can actively participate there. I've done coffee hour a few times and it's been a blast. It really helps when the Rector is a lesbian, the Assistant is gay, and I'm a happy member of the family.

    And yes, burd, there are Republicans there. I notice they don't talk to me.

    Care 78%
    Loyalty 61%
    Fairness 44%
    Authority 64%
    Purity 44%
    Liberty 64%
    Your strongest moral foundation is Care.

    Your morality is closest to that of a Conservative.

    Which is odd cause mookie was all for the brother and sister doing it or maybe that explains it
