Where is thy flock, preacher ma'am?

Hufpo Religion encyclical 03.26.2015AD reads "Head Of The Episcopal Church Says It's 'Sinful' To Ignore Climate Change"

Empty Chairs
Unfortunately for Bishop Katherine Jefferts Schori America is full of sinners - or maybe that's a good thing - honestly it's hard to tell how preachers feel about it:

  1. no sin and they're out of business
  2. too much sin means no ones listening to them anymore
  3. Apocalypse

I think, as far as the Episcopal Church is concerned, we're deep in stage 2 and slouching toward 3.


Maybe Gallup is an instrument of the devil but they claim that only 1 in 4 Americans worry about Global Warming, um, Climate Change and that half of us don't even think about it - A sin, and we couldn't care less. Maybe the Episcopalians are solidly in the Climate Change worry camp, but wait a second, I'm an Episcopalian and... Oh shit.

Jesusland goes to church while "the machine" keeps its distance

Could the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints be squeezing out the old guard? Regardless, I'll continue to congregate with the frozen chosen and inform them that they'll soon melt in a sea of fire and that it's my fault. The Religious Right will back me up 100%.



But what of the Liturgical Left? Who will fight for them as they die out or leave the church for a government job and free healthcare? Not to worry, Jesus has their back - at least in theory:
"We are meant to love God and what God has created and to love our neighbors as ourselves," Jefferts Schori said Tuesday. "Jesus insists that those who will enjoy abundant life are those who care for all neighbors, especially the 'least of these' -- the hungry and thirsty, the imprisoned and sick -- and that must include all the species that God has nurtured on this planet."
Even a species like the Episcopalian.

Thanks be to God!

Blue Devils and Yellow Cowards

A few weeks ago Duke lost Coach K’s last game at Camron Indoor Stadium to the schools hated rival, North Carolina University, in an epic grudge match. It was an “ unacceptable ” finale for the maniacal ferret-faced competitor who created the 40 year dynastic Duke hoops program with 1,000+ wins and fists full of ACC and NCAA championships but for Tar Heels everywhere it was a day of retribution. Michael  William Krzyzewski, is a red-blooded All-American college basketball coach of Polish and Ukrainian descent who grew up in Chicago’s famous Ukrainian Village which is (or at least was) culturally very reminiscent of the Rus borderlands. That is to say that young S h-shef-ski   grew up as  far away (psychology) from Dixie as is possible while still living within the borders of the USA. That makes him the perfect choice to represent Duke University and the Yankee overachievers who emigrate to Durham for 4 years of education and networking before moving back to non-Southern civilization.

Mask Off

U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle finally did it - after 14 months of mandatory masking by order of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this capricious and ineffectual edict has been ruled unconstitutional and, it follows, illegal.  Since January 29, 2021 the CDC has prohibited citizens to travel without wearing a mask but the insanity actually started as far back as July 14, 2020 when " CDC calls on Americans to wear masks to prevent COVID-19 spread ." That's 643 days of stupidity folks - it covers the Kenosha Riots, the attempted kidnapping of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, the Fake 2020 Election, the 1/6 Save America March and Insurrection, Jo(((K)))e Brandon's phony Inauguration, Trump's 2nd Impeachment, a horrible year of pathetic "leadership" from every single elected official in Washington DC, a war in Eastern Europe - and NOW, at long last, a federal judge in Florida ends the mask tyranny with one simple ruling from her bench.

Psycho Killer, qu'est-ce?

I came into this wicked world in the early 1960's and as a result I have born witness to America's 50 Years of Failure which includes the modern age of mass shootings by psychotic men who "go off" on a given day, for no reason at all (except "guns"), and kill scads of innocent bystanders. Back in August of 2019 a KOTCB blog post titled " Reciprocity City " explored a young  gunman  named Patrick Crusius  who drove 9 hours through the west Texas flatlands to shoot up El Paso, TX The KOTCB has commented on many of these shootings, bombings and knifings over the years -  The roots of the Boston Marathon Bombing ,  the Emanuel AME Church shooting ,  Syed Rizvan Farook and his bride Tashfeen Malik ,  Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooting ,  Nick Cruz lovesick Parkland shooting ,  the Iranian, PETA activist, Vegan Bodybuilder, YouTuber's attack on Google  and now this very oddly timed and placed "lone wolf" attack on Walmart shoppers.
