    "...and damaging in some sense to our power..."


    What have I said all along? Organized religion is about Power (and money).

    'The churches are dissatisfied with the Presbyterian Church (USA), which voted last year to allow the ordination of gay ministers, deacons and elders.' - Clarissa | 10:01 a.m. Nov. 9, 2011

    And as such, they will have less members, less income and less voice, due to the fact that they are trying to stay 'pure' in their teachings.

    I have been told that Christianity is a 'softer' version of the Old Testiment. Even the Book of Mormon is a book that is used WITH the Bible.

    It does not rely on the bible, alone.

    I was watching an episode of Oz, where a white supremisist asked the question: 'What is pure?'

    If we follow this logic, every chrstian denomination, from Presbyterian and LDS & Christianity should then follow only:


    And women should not vote, Blacks should be slaves, and you are forbidden from eating shell fish. (Sarcastic examples)

    I realized, eventually, if you disengage with anyone who is not 'pure' enough, divide yourself and weaken your stances based on 'purity'...

    you are left with...

    one person.

    Who will eventually, contradict themselves. And then be...

    'impure', even to themselves.

    I'm happy to hear about a church that is willing to stick to the truths taught in the Bible. Excellent job First Presbyterian of Orlando.
