Oh, gosh, SW, didn't know you were Lutheran! Thanks! I'll bring my rosary and ask where the next shrine is.

OK, the problem I have with this article is that he has his own rather rigid interpretation of Christianity. He doesn't like conservatives, plain and simple. I'm different. I do not agree with a conservative interpretation of Christianity, but I have many friends who do. There are conservatives in my parish. There is a wonderful nun who runs our Adult Education programs who is conservative. I am more liberal, I prefer to vote Democratic, and I wouldn't mind living in a political environment like that of Iceland's at all. But there is no one correct interpretation of Christianity, and I like to think Jesus has room for all of us. We're always going to have disagreements like this.

Hey Scarlett Thanks for the comlpimant....I was not going to post anymore but you thanking me really says a lot. If you and I can show love then everyone else should be able to as well. I am suppressed that this thread was not shut down! Very interesting reactions to your post and mine. I think when it comes to different countries and cultures it is hard for us to understand each others ways. I believe...and I am stating my belief, my opinion....that as long as we are not compromising God's Word we are doing what we are supposed to. What would Bono say? I BELEIVE he would say...."Love and Peace"!!!!

I think that this is yet another ejaculatory review of socialism and a bunch of his left wing freinds and aquaintances.

Ha! Made me laugh! I guess some people are weirded out by FYM... Just goes to show how different people are...I find the Goal is the Soul (or whatever it's called) very uncomfortable. It's just too lovey-dovey. Gives me the willies!

It`s not about the polilitics, it`s a about hatred and biggotry. A faith was singled out, the christian faith. Every time you point the finger there is always 4 pointing back at you. Are you going to get weirded out if some one discrmenates you based on belief or race, you gonna smile still and say its all right, i`m cool, i`m not like the rest of you. I`m better than you, like they say in Ireland; piss off .

Last I heard Lutherans were part of the Christain faith.

Just becasue we're not a *breathe* fundamentalist or extreme literalist religion doesn't make us any less Christian.

Even among Lutherans there are several layers of worship. Some are more rigid and we call theM "high Church services, closer to mass or Church of England.
My church is a small rural church - jeans welcome - very relaxed and nurturing. We also have a Pastor from the Presbyterian faith ( we joined a few years ago to share clergy and other involvements. I must say he is my favorite Pastor in my entire life, and at 44 that's saying alot.

I think you just attacked me. So much for kindness. Maybe the Goal is the Soul people aren't so lovey-dovey after all.

There is plenty of hatred and bigotry within religion, just like anything else. Perhaps you should look within.

I found the quote on another forum -so I won't link it as it's not the original article.

"I've prayed that God will REMOVE several justices..."

So not die or kill but not quite retire either. He aslo asked for a nuclear bonb to take out the State Dept, thought he might have a different view with Condi in there. Many people of this forum remember that quote I'm sure.
