Obama and his pet, Susan Rice, have attempted latitudinarian foreign policy and now we have Israel being bombed. First sirens since Gulf War. Obama's world. Rice's record at the U.N. on Israel is horrendous.

Good morning. Latitudinarian sounds like a fancy word for cafeteria Catholics.

Looks like an echo chamber in here......too many students are cutting class on FRidays. Shame on them.

....guess we have some remedial work for the miscreants.

The dems claim they’re latitudinarian
But my take is somewhat contrarian
They push, without caution
For Catholic abortion
All policies Rat-atudinarian

I saw something on twitter saying he was leaving that official line about the video behind. We shall see. I’m not optimistic.

Secret was in so early she had to make the coffee fer the teacher .....

If you don’t care where you are while traveling, you might be a Latitudinarian.

If you really don’t care where you are while traveling, you are both a Latitudinarian and a Longitudarian.

But if you forget a fine for overdue books while not caring where or when you are while traveling, you are definitely a Libraridinarian.

Public schools and other quasi governmental organizations can no longer be termed latitudinarian — they have no tolerance for Christians.

Bob, Long time no see!

Your special brand of brilliance, has been missed.

And speaking of missing, I’m also missing my Libraridirian.

Latitudinarian

We’re not going to get technical with a word that has that many letters and some twice or more. So let’s just skim the top of our brains: Latitudinarian is someone who studies Latins who have an attitude.
Example, I go home and both pizzas from Little Caesars are gone. What does the wife say? “Et tu...Brutalus!”

See what I mean? Next time I hide her dentures in the cat box and let’er gum her pepperoni. Latitudinarian is a tough job.

My brother-in-law got laid off yesterday. Worked for his company for 10 years, making C-Pap and other respiratory devices.

On another thread this morning, Desert Rhino posted this link to Mark Twain’s SCATHING review of James Fennimoore Cooper’s work. Wordsmiths should be interested in all of the ways he denigrates poor Cooper.

The latitudinarian Weltanschaung of the average American stands in stark contrast to the dogmatism of the Islamists.
