Come in! Come in!

"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a Hope-er, a Pray-er, a Magic Bean buyer; if you're a pretender, come sit by my fire. For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!" -- Shel Silverstein

Sometimes, organized religion makes you laugh

But mostly, it's MadPriest's disorganized take on the Roman Catholic Church in general and Pope Benedict in particular that's absolutely hysterical.

I believe that the views of the Pope and the bishops are instrumental in expanding the congregations of the Episcopal, Lutheran, and other more liberal denominations. Being an Ex-RC and recently coming over to ECUSA, I think that the RC strategy is positively brilliant. Their driving away the homosexual sinners (me) and everyone else who chooses to think instead of blindly follow. The sinners and aberrations are leaving the RC church in droves, how delightful. Fairly soon the RC hierarchy will have exactly what they want, a bunch of narrow minded old men lining up to hear each others confessions concerning all that thinking about sex that seems to intrigue them so.

YEAH! What Bill said.

I don't need an old man in a dress to tell me how to think.

And I certainly don't think a celibate old man should say ANYTHING to me about marriage, sex or who should be married or have sex.

I left Rome, rather than stayed to fight to change, because, if they want to kill their own denominaiton through bigotry and tribalism disguised as faith, they are definitely on the proper path.

I got two of my RC neighbors to come to TEC. One is divorced and remarried(quelle horreur!) and the other has a brother who is openly gay, and couldn't see how God could care about who he loves.

Bye-bye Benny. Don't worry, I didn't let the door hit me in the @ss when I left!
