    It is truly wonderful to see Evangelicals and Catholics who take the Word of God seriously working together to evangelize for Christ. If there was ever a time we need each other, it is now.

      I’m all for people being able to exercise their religion. That’s why I opposed neighbors wishing to silence the Baptist church on the corner during holy week, and their complaints that Good Friday services might violate some ordinance on amplified speaking and singing. I really don’t care for it when they complain my medical choices impact their religion. Christian Scientists may feel that prayer is plenty of medical treatment for e everyone, but we still require them to pay taxes to support public hospitals. The Greens are hypocrites.

  2. Take the word of God seriously? Condemn homosexuality because of Leviticus but ignore the command in Leviticus to kill adulterers of both sexes and fornicators of only one sex? How serious is that?

  3. Gawd the Pope is easily bribed.

    Throw some valuable art under his nose and suddenly you become important enough for his time. The Greens are trying to buy their way into heaven.

    Isn’t there something in the Bible about that? Something about a camel passing through the eye of a needle perhaps? :)

  4. Last I heard, the Southern Baptists were trying to convert Mormons. Are they now trying to convert the Pope? Makes sense to start at the top, I guess.

  5. So. Baptists and Catholics have much in common. They both are on the religious, self-focused spirituality ladder trying to improve their status before God.

    Not necessary.
