    Damn. Gotta get those Jedi numbers up.
    If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

      How sad is it that an organization who's motto is "love one another" would need such a sign?
      If you're poor, all the attention you get is a gigantic pity ****.

      Even though Grace Episcopal is LGBT affirming, after I got sober, Amber and two other families are the only ones still maintaining connection.

        And growing every year. I know for a fact that there are also lots of CEO Catholics, who may as well identify as 'ex' if they only bother to show up and pop a cardboard cookie and a sip of cheap vino twice a year.

          It's going to accelerate, as the proportion of black and brown Catholics is increasing and those guys are hardcore Back to the Past conservative. The combination of the Church's lurching right (driving away white progressives) and the church becoming non-white (driving away white conservatives) is going to hollow out American and European white Catholicism.

          Move the Papal seat to Hippo Regius. It's quite beautiful.

            I was a CAPE (Christmas, Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday, Easter) Catholic for many years before I gave up even that remnant.

            Better believe I'd still call myself a catholic if i ever had to run for office, though.

            • Atheist former Catholic here. Catholic school from K-8. Involved in high school youth group. Served on a diocesan youth council. Went atheist in college though honestly I was leaning that way in high school too. Mom, who was raised devout Catholic, did not take it well. But she has softened and become a progressive Catholic who hates trump and conservativism and leans pro-choice. Helps that she has a lesbian daughter and very liberal children and grandchildren.

                              • Pastor gets called out for hateful message on marquee and then blames cancel culture. I would say **** him, but let's be honest, no one should ever **** him.
