THIS is PCUSA.....NOT PCof America

I don't follow you, this is not Politically Correct of America? I think the Presybterians are getting way tooo politically correct and think they need our support as conservative Christians to fight against the liberals destroying them

“Being black or female is not a sin.” —> you are correct, the gay mafia use the civil rights as a pretext for their legalizing of sin.

aam: two new ones formed last week

Of course, there's a lot of change happening. Next week the North-Western Evangelical Bible-Reformed branch of PresbyMennonCongregationalutherAdventipentecostathism is due to split into the Central-North-Western Evangelical Bible-Reformed branch of PresbyMennonCongregationalutherAdventipentecostathism and the Central-Southern-North-Western Evangelical Bible-Reformed branch of PresbyMennonCongregationalutherAdventipentecostathism, but this is good driven as there as a dispute in the Congregation on matters of doctrine, Bobama thought that he should be Preach-pasto-Prophet Elder on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and alternate Sundays while Michelle thought that she should be that -- as she had yoga-pilates-kickboxing class on Thursdays.

Thank you.

In one sense it is funny; in another greater sense, it is tragic and heartbreaking.

While there were blaring hypocrisies in our society 40 - 50 years ago, particularly as it relates to race and sometimes women trapped in abusive marriages, the net change has not been better, but far worse. Families have born the brunt of the massive lapse in values, and by extension, the children of broken homes and single parent homes where the father has NEVER been around.

I blame the political left and politicians most. But the Christian church bears almost as much blame for two reasons. First, they have caved in to popular culture, for which the Presbyterian Church US can serve as a poster child. Secondly, and most importantly, the church and its members have not worked like they should to win hearts and souls (too much reliance has been placed on political activism - eg Christian Coalition, etc).

Micah 3:5-6
5 This is what the LORD says:

“As for the prophets
who lead my people astray,
they proclaim ‘peace’
if they have something to eat,
but prepare to wage war against anyone
who refuses to feed them.
6 Therefore night will come over you, without visions,
and darkness, without divination.
The sun will set for the prophets,
and the day will go dark for them.

Luke 17:1-3
1 Jesus said to his disciples: “Things that cause people to stumble are bound to come, but woe to anyone through whom they come. 2 It would be better for them to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around their neck than to cause one of these little ones to stumble. 3 So watch yourselves.

What’s amazing is that their method is so much aligned with that of the islamofascists.

Better not sell the Parishes, bishops. You’ll be getting more converts than ever this year.

What is the church, the building or the people? Many of these “churches” are going to end up as empty buildiings being put up for sale. I think the people who are still going to church want something more than “whatever” Christianity.

Sometimes evil can appear harmless — like taking a bite out of an apple.

Everything today is framed in the language of the civil rights movement.

An amendment to the Presbyterian constitution was ratified on May 10 by a majority of the church’s 173 regional organizations known as presbyteries, the Los Angeles Times reports.

I guess the libs finally worked their way to the top of the power structure so that they could affect the change they've been wanting all along.

I've always believed this is why there was such a push for women to be Roman Catholic priests. In fact, if you look at the arguments made by the proponents, they're all about power and change, not about serving God's people.
