A unitarian saying that? Unitarians believe it is a fantasy to believe that Jesus Christ is God, but they believe in Obama...

May I remind you of a thread you participated in?

HERE:

Of course there are always some who are too stupid to recognize the difference.

What are we arguing about now? Is it important?

No, it is very unimportant and not worthy of further consideration. For several years now Cronos has thought it necessary to hound me with scores of "Unitarian" insults despite the fact I have made it clear that, though I have a Unitarian philosophy, I am not a member of the Unitarian Church.

I copied you as a courtesy because I had linked to a post of yours last year which had made the distinction of membership vs philosophy clear.

Perhaps I hoped the link might be beneficial in disabusing Cronos of "his" mistaken idea and to stop wasting valuable band width with unnecessary posts.

Old Reggie: I have a Unitarian philosophy

Let's see what is a Unitarian philosophy:

  1. Unitarian "Church" Recognized for Welcoming All Sexual Orientations {Unitarians/Liberals}
  2. pagans to celebrate the 'rebirth' of sun with rituals {Unitarians}
  3. Go to church,meet an athiest
  4. The Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations (UUA) is not a Christian denomination. They describe themselves this way, "Unitarian Universalism is a caring, open-minded religion that encourages seekers to find their own spiritual path. Our faith draws on many religious sources, welcoming people with different beliefs.
  5. The Unitarian Church and Obama's Religious Upbringing
  6. And this one for the "biblical unitarian" --> about the unitarians reconsidering the Bible

What a fantastic philosophy -- basically anything is fine except Christianity...

If you can’t mug people for heresy, what CAN you mug them for.

Dear Cronos, Old Reggie has a knack for getting my goat like that of few others here. But disagreeing about Three Persons in One God, while perilous, is not the same as being a member of the Eew-Eew church with its nonsensical profession that somehow one can believe anything or nothing and still have a good reason for gathering in a building set apart for that purpose and engaging in cultic behavior, however resolutely boring and shallow.

And, forgive me if I am insufferably self-righteous here, it seems to me our interactions with the heresiarch (ONLY kidding, sort of) would be more useful to all if we backed off the Subaru-driving, liberal-endorsing, libertine gnosticism of that peculiar group and spent time,in an Ignatian way, trying to understand why O.R. thinks as he does.

Speaking of Subarus, (we were, weren’t we?) I rolled mine on 3/26. I know get to say, “... and I crawled out from under the wreckage,” with a straight face! I’m fine. Car, not so much.

It was FUN! If it didn’t cost so much, I’d do it more often!

(Isn’t anybody going to ask me about my new tag-line?)
