For those of us who haven't been following along in the book:

Revelation of John 6:9-11
And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

Your wish is my command...

I Timothy 6:10
For the love of money is the root of all evils; it is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced their hearts with many pangs.

Qur'an 2:268
The Evil one threatens you with poverty and bids you to conduct unseemly. Allah promiseth you His forgiveness and bounties. And Allah careth for all and He knoweth all things.

We had a meeting with the owner of the company yesterday, today I walked out... Let's just say I didn't like what I heard, and now I know why the rest of the minions are the way they are... Birds of a feather blah blah blah... ;)

I don't know... but I think she has a chip (on her shoulder).


Is it chocolate?

Never surrender and never give up. In the darkest hour there is always hope.

Yes, she may be a bishop

Article from: The Mercury

MARIA RAE

AN Anglican Church ruling allowing women to become bishops opens the door to equality, says a female Tasmanian priest.

The Appellate Tribunal of the Anglican Church yesterday ruled there was nothing in the constitution stopping women becoming bishops.

In 2005, a group of 25 members of the church's national parliament -- the General Synod -- asked the tribunal for its view on the lawfulness of women bishops.

The tribunal, by a majority of four to three, yesterday found it was possible to consecrate women bishops.

However, there's an ironic twist in the law that prevents women being appointed as assistant bishops.

Reverend Helen Phillips has welcomed the ruling as a healthy step forward.

"It's been a long journey through the process," she said.

She described the move as part of the whole journey of all humans being equal.

"Some of us have gifts of leadership whether we're male or female," she said.

"I'd just like the doors open for everybody so if they've got these gifts they can use them fully."

But the Archdeacon, who has been a priest for three years, said there will be further steps to full acceptance of the ruling.

"I'm sure there'll be a further debate in the synod," she said.

Tasmanian Bishop John Harrower also personally favours the move as a progressive step.

But he said there would be a range of opinions within the Tasmanian synod.

"I think there'll be a cautious acceptance of it," he said.

He said many had wrestled with the theological issues surrounding the debate.

Bishops are elected through a nomination committee with a requirement they have served as priests for 10 years.

Tasmanian women have been able to be priests since 1992 and there are currently 35 registered in the state.

So now both genders can spread misery, unearned guilt, and falsehoods.

The truth is:

Your misery is because you have failed to abide by the rules...

Your guilt is because you are well aware of the evils that you do...

And the falsehoods are what you enjoy listening to, it's the truth that makes you uptight... ;)

Who says I'm miserable? Speak for yourself. Who says I feel guilty of anything? Speak for yourself.

Truth=recognition of reality

Somehow I became convinced along the way, Jeffrey that you are far from having a handle on this, not by any means.

I guess since none of this applies to you, you were speaking for others... ;)

Dogbytes and I were asserting things about what we believe to be the content of certain organized religions and its effects on society.
