So sorry I missed that, Bobby! There was a smiliar one going on the Elkton MD one a few years ago about a similar type 'lady' who ended up murdered and tossed on the side of the road, probably by one of her customers, leaving behind three kids with different last names and a grieving 'fiancee' in Maryland Correctional Center - Cumberland.

You're frank. At least I never wonder what you're saying behind my back. I appreciate that in a person.(Don't get carried away.:-))

I was referring to its potential ability to corrode the soul, since Dukie is so worried about my salvation. It was funnier than it was foul and it did exceed the funniness quotient of anything that passes for stand-up in this century.

No, there is no Church of Reproductive Choice--at least not referenced by me. There is a group, supported by a number of Protestant denominations called the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice. It is supported by your own denomination (United Methodist), something you tried to deny by claiming that the United Methodist Church was just a splinter group of Real Mehtodism (yes--I just made that name up) formed by two ministers in the mid 1960s.
Most of the denominations are supportive because they recognize the complexity of the choice issue as well as being supportive of comprehensive sorts of reproductive health--and life after birth.
That abortion stance is not supported by any methodist church that is a member of the conference.

It's a shame there is so little to laugh at, or that you even can laugh at these days. Not because the subject matter isn't there, but because the PC police has castrated everybody so they won't say anything about it.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I actually did some work for a Methodist Church. The Methodist Church was originally called the Methodist Episcopal Church, and it was formed in reaction to what some people felt was too much liberalism creeping into the Anglican (Episcopal) Church. The Methodist Episcopal Church members mostly have Anglo roots. It took on the name "United Methodist Church" when the Methodist Episcopal Church merged with the United Church of Christ in 1969-ish, which had virtually similar doctrines, but more of a German Heritage.

Bottom line is that SL is correct that the Methodist Church is traditionally supposed to be a conservative institution and not a liberal one.

*** Interesting side note: The African Methodist Episcopal church was also originally part of the Methodist Episcopal Church.

At least back in the old days people had shame. These sad-sacks need to be told what they're doing is not good, and need to be shown that there is a cause and effect relationship between the things they do and the pathetic things that happen to them.

So consider this a public service, while entertaining myself at the same time.

Well described.

They have been springing up all over the country for years. Not affilated with any organized religion and gathering their parishioners by preaching the 'word' they want to hear. They can slap 'methodist','baptist','all saints', anything they want on there. Doesn't make them legit. I particularly like the 'annointed.' LOL

The correct translation is thou shalt not murder. Killing as a punishment and to claim land was often command by God for the Israelites to do.

But they're the right color for her to feel maternal and condescending. Reader can get her foot in the door that way and work on the gender angle.

I don't know the full history. However, the United Church of Christ is still in existence--hence did not merge in the 60s. Most American protestent sects experienced a North-South type split during the Civil War (or thereabouts) over slavery. I do believe that there was some kind of coming together around about that time. However, this is quite distinctly different from a group splintering off (as SL has claimed). And the history of Methodism in this country goes back over a hundred years--which I know from having worked at a Methodist-founded institution for a good many years.

It seems to be something in the nature of Protestantism that there is frequently a tension between the local congregations and the policies and missions nationally--so I cannot swear that the policies that I have experience were completely universal. However, going back easily to the 1960s Methodism in the US (as expressed by the United Methodist Church nationally) has been pretty solidly concerned with such social issues as poverty, education, health, diversity and inclusion and so forth. And have been viewed by many as liberal.

But, they are certainly far from having fundamentalist leanings of the sort that declares others to be un-Christian, false prophets or led by Satan for holding views supportive of reproductive choice.
