Rich, my own church is dysfunctional at times. I specifically said that
Roman Catholic traditionalism was dysfunctional, and that that
dysfunctionality is why the English were able to win Quebec from France.
This is history, not a characterization of your church. Tonight I posted
the detailed explanation, with its source, in answer to Ken's incorrect
belief that New France was a negligible little failed colony that evaporated
and left no lasting effect on our lives.
My own church would be the Episcopal Church - I believe there was an article
about it in the New York Times, either today or yesterday. Go take a look.
Wolfish grin. But you'd see more evidence of frank dysfunctionality if you
look up and read a critter called the Windsor Report. I think it's
currently on the web site of the Archbishop of Canterbury - or the Anglican
Communtion. The high point was to look straight down his nose at the
former colonial churches who make up the Anglican Communion, and tell us to
stop randomely substituting ideas into sentences and leave thinking to our
betters. In other words, whether you think homosexualtiy is right or
wrong, conscience is nothing more than randomely substituting ideas into
sentences, and the entire Protestant Reformation never happened; people need
to stop thinking, and let our elders and betters think for us.
Or I could direct you to certain statements by our new Presiding Bishop last
summer about Mother Jesus caring for her brood of chickens. In short,
everyone who has a head is saying things about my church.
I'm sure that from your staunch Roman Catholic point of view you could make
some interesting statements about a church that suffers from such strong
internal forces toward believing absolutely nothing at all, that has nothing
at all with explaining the outcome of a historical war, and I wouldn't melt
if you did.
