This thread is overly cryptic, even for you, deep.

My polling place is in a church.



Saint James Episcopalian Church in Newport Beach.

The polls opened at 7 a m. I got there at 6:55 a m.

I was second in line.

I have been voting there for years.

I have lived at the same address for 20 years.

I have to go into a gay-bashing church

to vote no on Proposition 8.

NEWPORT BEACH, CA: St. James Priest Resigns over "Inappropriate Conduct" Charges

By David W. Virtue

The Rev. Praveen Bunyan, priest of the breakaway congregation of St. James Newport Beach has resigned from his duties as priest of the parish over allegations of "inappropriate conduct" toward a female parishioner.

A terse three paragraph statement issued by the church, said The Rev. Praveen Bunyan has resigned his position as rector of St. James Anglican Church, having confessed to the inappropriate behavior. The vestry, wardens and bishop were informed of the inappropriate conduct, promptly investigated, and then accepted the resignation last week.

The 1,200 member congregation was informed at Sunday services yesterday.

Pastoral duties are now being provided by the church's Rector Emeritus, the Rev. Canon David C. Anderson, and by its Associate Rector, the Rev. Richard Menees.

Anderson told VOL; "I will commute one or two Sundays a month to provide continuity and stability."

St. James Church in Newport Beach is one of three churches, (a fourth, St. Luke's later departed) that left the Episcopal Church in August 2004 because of differences over homosexuality and the rejection of the authority of Holy Scripture. The parishes placed themselves under the ecclesiastical authority of The Most Rev. Henry Orombi, Archbishop of the Province of Uganda who placed them immediately with The Rt. Rev. Evans M. Kisekka, Bishop of Luweero.

At that time Fr. Bunyan exhorted his parishioners to "stand by the word of God that is never changing."

I think this must win the FYM award for longest time ever taken to answer a question.

Did you find out why you got purged from the rolls?

It took me this long to get the picture off my iPhone and into photo bucket.

And also, I was thinking of the irony of going to that church to vote no on 8.

After I calmed down and thought about it.

I think I applied for a mail-in ballot a week earlier.

It did not arrive,
so I went Church to vote.

I think it is really strange that people have to vote in churches. Schools and other public institutions seem appropriate, but churches have agendas, and do preach them, even sometimes testing the limits of their tax-exemption.

Just another flaw in our very, very flawed voting system.

I voted at a church, as an atheist and a secularist they seem to be legitimate venues for voting, centers of communities and all.
