It sounds like you may be the next person to lose it! You are a sick person to think the church folks are wrong.

Your rotten dirty President and low life GOP criminals are to blame for everything in this country. You GOP people need to go hide in a hole and nevr come back. You are no Christian people if you are I never want to follow your "Jesus".

JUST GO AWAY.

And this shows your ignorance about other religion. Some pagans worship creation alone because God/Goddess is INSIDE it. Other pagans worship a God/Goddess as if it were a figure similar to the christian God.

<quoted text>showes what you know. In Michigan average teacher salery is 52,000 plus benefits. One uu i know is a counselor that makes over 120,000 a year. I could introduce you to dozens of uu,s by Frist and last name they know me quite well, they dint like me but they know me.
When they referred to the UU paying taxes, they meant the church itself. Church's get an exemption from taxes. Not the congregation itself.

And, I see in your next post you mention the word "learn." Wish you would go back to school and learn to spell. I know we have some damned good schools in Michigan. Go find one.

Oh, and ONE more thing. There are going to be "bad" people in every sect of every religion. It's human nature. Basing an entire group on the impression of just a small test sample is wrong.

Unitarians are sometimes referred to as Athiests With Children. Maybe God got tired of their heresy and used this nut case to smite them. Maybe they got on his last nerve.

So they are specifically barring Christians from attending UU to worship their god ? Link me a UU web page that does so.

Oh I'm sure they can go. But the belief systems are diametrically opposed to one other.
What don't you understand?
Christians belief Jesus is Lord.
Matthew 7:14
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves."

Hello what don't you understand?
Do not mistake the U.U. Fellowship for a Christian Church! There is nothing Christian about this group!!!
There are many Wiccans, witches, Pagans, and people with other earth-based spiritualities who lead and worship in Unitarian Universalist congregations. At last count, 19 percent of their members identified with an Earth/Nature centered faith. This is one of the fastest-growing groups within FELLOWSHIP.
The sources of inspiration for the UU faith are too many to be counted, but delegates from each congregation have agreed that one of the predominant sources of our faith is, "Spiritual teachings of earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature."
In addition to modern Paganism, many Unitarian Universalists find spiritual inspiration in other forms of nature-based spirituality, including simple seasonal reverence, modern Transcendentalism, and other nature-honoring paths.

What's wrong with a well developed belief in freedom of religion? I like them better than the one-sided, small-minded churches.

Well, maybe we just got to the root of the problem.
Maybe that is why he shot up the fellowship.
He wanted some virgins.

Wrong Direction?

I disagree. If not for high gas prices and the housing situation where too many people signed either stupid loans or bought a house they simply couldn..t pay for, I think our economy would be singing along right now on all 8 cylinders. I refuse to give up on the United States of America. Too many good hard working people to give up on.

Half of our problem would be solved if our Congress would open up drilling and exploration in and around this country and get the US off of middle eastern oil. The other half, housing, will right itself. Fact. As bad as the housing seems on the nightly news, 95% of mortgage holders in this country are paying their mortgages on time. I personally haven..t missed a one since I bought my first house in ..93.

I am in the new home construction business in three states in the southeastern part of our country. Commercial building in my three states is humming right along. Building everyday.

If Pelosi would get off her kick about wanting to save the world and allow our country to be energy independent and even build nuclear power plants like other countries in the world, alot of our problems today would be solved. Of course, Pelosi doesn..t need anything positive happening right now or in the next six months because her party has an election to win. What is happening dialy with Americans struggling to afford to fill their gas tanks couldn..t concern Pelosi or her Dem controlled Congress at all. They couldn..t care less about people right now and through the end of the year.

Fact. Gas prices have been dropping since Bush lifted the executive ban on offshore drilling. Period. All it took was this countries leaders talking about it. If Congress were to lift all the bans in this country... immediatly, gas prices would fall much, much more. In my business, if my customers were tired of paying my high prices for my product and they were simply talking about manufacturing their own product instead of continueing to buy it from me, I would lower my prices in a heartbeat...

That will never happen because, like I said, Pelosi and our ahhm big evil Democratic led Congress, with their approval rating of just 9%, have an election to win. John Doe struggling today and tommorrow doesn..t matter.

I get to expense all my gas... Last month, I turned in over $800.00 in gas alone... I don..t have to buy gas.
