But of course it’s an Anglican, Stephen. It had to be that or a Unitarian.

Ynet news: A Polish court has found a singer in a heavy metal band, who tore up the Bible during a performance, not guilty of offending religious sentiments. The judge ruled last week that the ripping of the holy book by Behemoth frontman Adam Darski could be defined as “artistic expression” consistent with his band’s style. Darski, who uses the stage name Nergal as the Babylonian god mentioned in the Book of Kings, is a famous figure in his home … Read More
This guy should be removed from his office today. Not because of his acts but because of his words. Any priest who states that the God of the Bible is wicked and perverse has no business being a priest. Let him join the tribe of angry atheist ex Christians. But kick him out of the Church first.
To allow him to remain in the priesthood is a travesty and an injustice.
What a wicked man! The Church in Wales says it is investigating after a Gwynedd rector burnt some pages from the Bible. The Reverend Geraint ap Iorwerth of St Peter ad Vincula Church, Pennal, also cut up pages from the King James Bible to create an artwork. Unveiling it at a church event, he said it revealed a “cruel and vile God”. The Bishop of Bangor said: “Destroying parts of the Bible we don’t like is disrespectful and will offend many … Read More

They aren’t members of the Church anyway. Regardless of what they might ‘believe’.
Only 15 percent of members of the Church of Sweden say they believe in Jesus, and an equal number claim to be atheists according to the results of a recent survey. I don’t even know what to say… I mean, what’s the point? Church without Jesus?! More than 10,000 members of the Swedish Church participated in a comprehensive membership survey carried out over the past year and dubbed “Member 2010” (Medlem 2010). According to the survey, 15 percent … Read More
It’s an idea whose time has come. Responsible employees of lots of companies undergo drug testing and if they fail, they’re fired.
Welfare recipients are being paid to do nothing by taxpayers who work very hard for their income. Why should that hard earned money be doled out to people who will use it to buy drugs (or alcohol or cigarettes for that matter). It seems reasonable that they experience the same requirements as people who actually labor for their money. Welfare is already an excuse for too much laziness. Why should it also provide the lazy with drugs?
If welfare recipients don’t like the idea of having to prove they aren’t being subsidized in their substance abuse by taxpayers, they can always refuse the money. ‘If they don’t work, let them starve’- St. Paul to the Thessalonians. Nothing motivates to labor like hunger.
I agree completely with the Governor. Every State should adopt the same law.
So it would seem: (CBS4) – Expect challenges to a bill signed by Governor Rick Scott which will require welfare applicants to undergo drug testing. The bill also requires that those who apply for welfare must pay for the drug testing out of their own pockets. However, the cost would be reimbursed if the person passes the drug test… “While there are certainly legitimate needs for public assistance, it is unfair for Florida taxpayers to subsidize … Read More
