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

They're heeeerrrreee!

I'm remembering that it was 'gonzo journalist' Dr. Hunter S. Thompson who said,

"When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro."

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Exhibit A.

Compare and contrast messages and then you tell me.

By the way, these are just some 'local boys'. They tell me they are members of a local 'non-denominational evangelical church' who have 'friends' here.

Yeah, I'll just bet they do.

I'm thinkin', well, everyone has friends in 'low places'.

Well, and I figure, that's what they think of me.

Let the good times roll!

Beautiful. Beautiful are the feet of them who bring *good* news. As opposed to these guys - who, after all, have been touched by Jesus, so...i'm glad they're there, all-in-all. "How long, O Lord, how long?"

i'm going to risk praying a deliverance for the hate-filled in Anaheim. i think my neighbor Tabernacle of Deliverance and Praise buddies would agree.

thanks for letting us know that they showed up, E. Let the *good* times roll!

I remember the locals who came out with signs to protest in Atlanta during the Justice is Orthodox Theology conference. A woman pulled up next to us in front of All Saints in her car and said to us, "I don't know what you're doing in there, but keep it up."

I think these are the same guys who demonstrated at the masses celebrated by Pope Benedict when he visited the U.S. There's a Youtube video of them shouting abuse while people are trying to sing the Sanctus.

Nice to be in good company, isn't it?

At that same conference in Atlanta, a group of us were waiting to cross the street while the pickets shouted at us. The total stereotype pick up truck pulled up and a young lady with the stereotype big hair leaned out of the window and I sort of braced myself for another scream. She saluted the pickets (single finger) and screamed "Asshole bigots!" She immediately became my hero.
