We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I don't believe in the concept of original sin, or the idea of salvation. People don't need to be saved. They need to be educated, so they can understand life, and be happy. The Church is really an anti-educational, and anti-philosophical organization. They're like Alcoholics Anonymous: members are supposed to believe that they are worthless, and no discussion of other subjects is allowed.
