We hear a lot about the "religious right" in this country. We rarely hear about the religious left. Are you giving your time, talent, and treasure to any of the following organizations? If so, did you know you are supporting the anti-gun movement? Why not just write a check to Sarah Brady directly?

Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
Lutheran Office for Governmental Affairs
Mennonite Central Committee, US
Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)
United Church of Christ, Office for Church in Society
United Methodist Church Board of Church and Society

I noticed the web site listed affiliations by state, and the only southern state I could find was North Carolina.

Praise god...and pass the ammunition!

Maryland, Virginia, Washington DC.

Anyway, all the names I posted were from the National list.

MP, your list saddens me, as I am an elder in my local PCUSA church. :cry:

Without going off into religion, suffice it to say that our church family is the center for much of our family life. That being said, the liberal beauracracy of the denomination has also recently and after many years, back-doored (pardon the pun), the ordination of gays in a 'local option' policy. There is currently a popular conservative uprising to take back the denomination. It is my prayer that it works, as I have been a Presbyterian all my life, but increasingly cannot support the denomination. Time for the right-minded to stand up and take charge. :shoot:

Makes me glad I am non-religious.

I am an "apathetic agnostic". That means, while I am fairly certain there is something out there greater than we are, be it God, Buddah, any other gods, giant space aliens, or Atuin, the great space turtle...I just don't care. I have better things to spend my time on. But, if they make YOU happy...fine by me. :)

After all...you never heard anyone starting a jihad on the basis of believing in "well...pretty much nothing in particular...sorta..."

Well, as long as people are going to share religious web sites in the Off Topic section, here is the absolute best one out there on biblical topics.

http://www.christiancourier.com/

You won't find anything on CCW, though. In fact, you won't find anything political, for the most part. Well, except maybe this article responding to a diatribe by a UMC clergyman/slash lawyer, "Starr's Church of Christ" - A Review.
http://www.christiancourier.com/article ... t_a_review

Oh, and there is The President, Adultery, and "Baptist Rules." http://www.christiancourier.com/article ... tist_rules

Don't expect to read about manmade tradition= religion on the site, though. It is about what the Bible has to say, not so much what man has to say.

You left out the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster...

Other than that, I agree. Gods come and go... Not many people worship Zeus or Thor these days and, a few centuries from now, Christianity and Islam may well be just memories. But there will be other religions to fill the void. Apparently, people need religion.

Looking at the list, I have no problem with the Mennonites or, for that matter, The Religious Society of Friends, as they have been peaceful conscioutious objectors since their founding. The others, I sorta puke when I read the list...

Thank God my old religion, the Catholic church, still believes in guns and violence and killing and "good wars" and such like. I was taught by some nuns who fully approved of the Inquisition. Really! Actually, some of them were old enough to have participated......

Scary bunch of old biddies! And my mother wonders why I don't go to church...

The Hot Place?

GC,
:twisted: :twisted: :twisted: If you are alive long enough you won't need to die to go to the Hot Place. Based on the religion of Global Warming, it will get hot here. I remember back in the early 70's the same idiots where saying in ten years there would be a new ice age. Go figure, so Asbrand you can add Global Warming to your list of beleifs. The great space turtle is one I have never heard of, that's good.
Always remember GC: "Smoking section or non-smoking".
Take care, :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

A'tuin.
Google Terry Pratchet.
Hillarious.
I've read most all of his stuff. Great way to take your mind off the day to day fears of the world we live in.

Haha I heard something the other day. A friend's geology professor said it: "If global warming is true, at least Washington D.C. will be under 300 feet of water."

:lol:

The folks on that list never rest.

Time to Put Our Faith in Ending Gun Scourge

:roll:
Thanks (I think) for posting that MP.

I have only one thing to say:

:banghead:

:puke:

:bsflag:

:screwy:

:censored: :censored: :censored:

OK, maybe a few things to say, but nothing suitable for a family-friendly website where children post...!

I worship Thor, like my ancestors.
I just replaced Mjolnir with a 7.62x54r.

Weapons are not only encouraged, but mandatory.

'At the same time,' he continued, 'the revelation of the plot demonstrated there is a great personal danger to millions of law-abiding American citizens created by certain clergymen in their campaign to undermine the right to self-defense. Unfortunately, ministers of various religious denominations work to deny Americans their right to keep and bear the arms they very well may need to defend their own lives and the lives of their loved ones. These clergymen are committed to civilian disarmament.'
