but I have been around a Unitarian church here, and the number of notices on the boards about 'social justice' this and 'economic justice' that has made it certain that it's not a place I could enjoy being for services(if they're allowed to call them that*).
I was pleased to find an Episcopal church whose website focused on religion, not ObamaCare. I left a message for the priest that I was looking for a church that didn't press a political agenda because I wasn't a liberal.
I received an icy reply from the priest, the Reverend Lucy, who said with barely-contained disgust, "I don't think you should check us out."
Her response left me shaken and angry. I understand that leftists despise conservatives. I have seen that creepy look of pure hatred when I naïvely told a leftist friend about my political conversion.
But an Episcopal priest rejecting me during the holiest time of year? Isn't anything or anyone sacred?
Not to these people. They're like the priests and nuns in Central & South America preaching that there has to be a communist(they prefer to say 'socialist') revolution before Christ can return, so-called liberation theology: if you don't fall into line with the preferred concept, you're an Enemy of the People and deserve to be treated as such.
*The folk dance group I've mentioned meets there; once said something about God and received a lecture from one of the church(?) members about how I shouldn't say that because "Some people don't believe in God." "I can't say 'God' in a church?" "No." Pause. "How 'bout 'goddess' or 'deity'?" "That's ok."
I need one of the nice, rainbow Celebrate Diversity! shirts, if I can find the link. Though there's always solid colors, and this one's nice too. Any of those ought to make some heads explode.
