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.
In an effort to one-up The Barrister today, how is this for foolishness?
He might be the Archbishop of Canterbury, and thus guardian of the Anglican faith. But every time I see Dr Rowan Williamsí smug face or hear his social-worker voice, I feel like breaking at least one of the Ten Commandments (Iíll leave it to readersí febrile imaginations to guess which one).
Unfortunately, this is becoming more common, especially in the mainline denominations. The pastor of my Presbyterian church has been gradually introducing liberal philosophy into his sermons, particularly in the area of environmentalism. He has included pagan concepts in the worship service, such as refering to God as Father and Mother. No one should be fooled into thinking that liberalism begins and ends with politics.
