    It is possible there is one non-toxic religion.

    I don't think you wiffed. I thought you were referring to Spirit in the Sky and made the appropriate comment that some groups that sang songs with christian themes were not all that religious.

    I also completely get the point TC made in her post. On the meaning of "alright," though, she does not have the advantage of old age to inform her how that word was used back in those days. And that's a good thing for her.

    Greenbaum was a funny guy. He was a Jewish man who, for whatever reason, became enthralled by gospel band music. He never converted, but just really enjoyed the music.

    He isn't great, he isn't terrible, he's just alright.

    He knows what Francis meant. Sic is trolling and doing a bad job of it, per his usual MO.

    People here tell me armament is dangerous.

    Responding to Sic, who is being relentlessly and purposefully obtuse.

    As Pope Francis said in a 2020 address, “There is no path to holiness … without spiritual combat,” and Francis is only one of many Church officials who have endorsed the idea of the rosary as an armament in that fight.
