A Religious Liberal Blog

This site hopefully can provide some vehicle by which I can comment, complain, and once in a while praise the state of religion in this country and around the world from a liberal protestant perspective.

Get Religion has covered another angle on the ban of gay clergy and that is the way that such a directive will be used to rid the church of dissent on this issue. Benedict also has sought to inhibit Franciscans in Italy for their interfaith work. And there is some indication that conservative Presbyterians are looking for a church split soon.

Here is All Campus Praise Worship faith statement. Some of the language is good in lifting up church unity while the religious exclusivism is hard to swallow. Their theme next semester will be "one way" to God through Christianity. We're not likely to participate in it. But I hope some dialogue can start up from these events.

im amazed his assholiness the new pope BENNY THE RAT didnt come out with an dark ages edict that would chastise priests who molest girls.
Does their god of fear and self loathing absolve those priests who indulge with women of any age??
SUCH hypocrisy
