Good point...and I know that to be true of may people working for religious social service organizations. Most/many of the organizations don't care, to the extent that you are not publicly undermining them and that you are doing decent work.


One of the many things I enjoyed about working at SAF the Religious/Ethnic Diversity of the people I worked with. Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, Wicca. After September 11, 2001 our then E.D. invited members of the local Muslim Community to attend an interfaith service at SAF. Our staff embraced the differences we found in each other. The Rainbow Flag was welcome at SAF. Which put us on the negative end of some of the more restrictive Archdiocese edicts on Same Sex Marriage and openly LGTBQ working at the Foundation.

The Bishop bascially ignored SAF for years. After Loma Preita, St. Boniface needed serious upgrades and put at the bottom of the list. It took years to get the stained glass replaced.

I believe you are correct, that infallibility was first invoked regarding the Assumption of Mary. It's definitely related to resolving doctrinal conflicts. Most of the time, Pontifex Maximus is just as fallible as we are, thank... uh... God.

A lot of these Catholic doctrines aren't as old as we think they are. Priestly celibacy would surprise you. Etc..

Wiccans........ the ones I knew tended to be pretty cool people. Definitely the ones you'd want at your party.

White Evangelical conservatives have legendarily despised Catholics, to the point of joining the Klan to lynch them.

Not to mention the laws white Evangelical conservatives passed against them.

I notice that a lot of you like them, though, when it means mining that vote against the gays and the abortion. :problem:


I notice you and others never seem to bad mouth Muslims on Gay rights or any of the other things you constantly bring up about Whites, Evangelicals, and many Christians in general. Why is that?

Go read Irshad Manji.

Because it is the religious right claiming that country is Christian and the law of the state must be biblically based. If your fellow conservatives had their way there would be Christian Sharia law ruling over you.

I assume you also reported the thread I was responding to and while you are at it be sure and report the 12 personal attacks you have directed at me since Jan 1st.

Since you already know this to be a resentment-based lie, you're lucky I'm even answering it.

What I talk about regarding "Christians" is very, VERY specific.

Try me. See just how specific I can get about your white conservative Christian Evanglical grifter lifestyle choice.

If you're asking an actual question, that is, if you're capable of honesty and integrity, I'll gladly answer it.

If you're asking to try and be clever or simply express more of your white conservative resentments against Muslims and my posts, you can go jump in the lake.

Do let me know which it is.

Irshad Manji
Saalam

Muslims for Progressive Values
LGBT Muslim Retreat
Trikone Magazine

Lots more

It would be one thing if the US had a 400+ year history of Muslims enslaving, genociding, legislating, policing and over-policing, raping, restricting immigration, eugenicizing, conversion therapizing, and basically mistreating everyone in their path for their own benefit, that might be something.

In this country, however, we know who has the history of doing so:

white
conservative
Christian
heterosexual
males

Well, according a story in morning paper Sacred Heart of Greenwich has decided not to suspend the student in question.

The Right To Freedom of Speech wins out.
