Do I need to remind you what the Bible says about bragging??
Matthew 6:1-34
“Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven.“Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.“And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward...."
Did you read the part about no reward? For shame

Not bragging...just stating the FACTS of where I spent my weekend. I wish that you would learn that the BIBLE is not a weapon nor is it to be used as one. May God smite you for your sins.

You just don't get it do you?
What other parts of the Bible do you choose to disregard----oh I remember that little thing about not sleeping with a member of your sex. As in same sexers.
Repent sinner before it is too late.

What are you doing here?

Bragging about your supposedly non-bragging comments?

Yes, I think that is exactly what you, in your self-righteous pomposity, are doing.

Shameless.

Who says I am not welcome or needed? YOU????

ROTFLMAO!!!!!

Am I supposed to believe that your feelings are hurt because I am willing to ignore your bombastic, self-righteous, hypocritical vitriol?

Get a life - other than consistently showing yourself to be an internet pit-troll slave to Selecia, whenever she gives you her bidding.

This Forum thread is about an Episcopal Church in South Dakota that opened its doors to people who were being forced to worship outside in hostile elements. Perhaps some significant friendships resulted. We can only hope.

But, since you don't wish to explore the thread topic for its possibilities and instead consistently post personal insults aimed at people you don't know and who you have chosen to dislike, It is YOU who are "butting into" the conversation. Not me.

YOU are the bigoted hypocrite. YOU are the Jerk. YOU are the one who actually deserves no reply, because of your useless, venomous, off-topic drivel.

Why don't you move to California and take up residence in the Komodo Dragon pen at the San Diego Zoo where you can relish enjoyment in being fed rotten chicken? Surely, your comfort and happiness level would go way up and you would be welcomed, immediately, in those surroundings. Nothing like finding happiness among your peers.

LOL! Not really.

But, when you read another's post and it evokes disturbing feelings and thoughts of Old Fartdom and pimply adolescence at the same time, it is apparent that YOU are the old fart who never grew up.

You just have trouble actually seeing yourself.

Which begs another question: Why are you so obsessed with "perverts?"

Undoubtedly, Selecia is right. You've been spending way too much time visiting too many porn sites, now that you are in retirement.

You mean that YOU see the same way SHADOW of Skunk Mound sees?

LOL!!!! Surprise.... Surprise !... and, no doubt about it, for the record.

The old adage of "Birds of a Feather ... do ... flock together" appears to be appropriate for you two.

Middleway used to accuse people of being "sock puppets" whenever one expressed an affinity to another's views. Are you now admitting to becoming SHADOW of Skunk Mound's sock puppet?

Well,.... ain't that cute. He surely needs a friend and a mimic, in his self-congratulatory misery.
