As opposed to:
"coven of hysterical, know-nothing, self-important, self-righteous protesters"?
The only thing that's preventing me from responding to the use of the term "Rabid Cliques" with "Harpies for Jesus" is a sense that it would be personally insulting. Oh sure, there might be a lot of people giggling uncontrollably if I wrote "Calvinista Cockroaches", "Calvin's Corgies", "Calvinihuahuas", "Reformed Rutabagas", "Cranks for Calvin", "Luther's Losers", "Hell's Nags and Affiliated Cows", Brides of Calvinstein, Jezebels Understudies or "Horse of Babble-on"... give me some time I could come up with some great ones... but it would STILL be mean-spirited, counterproductive and nasty.
My neighbor just gave me a 100ml bottle of whiskey in honor of my dead cat. My wife is hiccuping just from sniffing the bottle, smells like aftershave to me... probably tastes like Calvin's catbox (you know where I'm going with this now don't you?) which is where most of the "reformed" doctrines around here seem to have originated.
But you must remember that Quix is not Reformed in any manner; he is professed Pentecostal. It is in their antiCatholic beliefs that they are fellow travellers...
Actually, I’m in favor of whatever label you prayerfully think is true.
Christ called the religious magicsterical 2000 years ago a brood of vipers; white washed tombs; sons of satan etc.
Telling it as perceived/like it is at least has a chance to get folks thinking . . . and possibly praying.
(raising hand slowly)I giggled until the dog woke up. The cat is already hiding. I can’t decide which one I like best.
