All together now..

I read this article with a tad bit of disappointment, but at the same time, a bit of excitement: at least they are trying to work together to find the common ground that they have lost. Growing up in a family with both Angelicans and Catholics, it would be nice for me to see the two churches unite. After all, I believe that little more than a name and a few theological differances seperate the two.

For me, I think that in the end, in order for the church to survive and be relevant it will have to be united under one banner anyways. I am glad that they also see that too, and are working towards those goals.

It should be interesting to see how the same-sex marriage, female preists, and other issues get dealt with. It could signify whether the churches choose to become more progressive or not.

You're assuming that the schism between different branches of the Christian faith was a result of Christians. Maybe that's what we wanted, a grand divisive plan to destabilize Christianity, we just let you mindless indoctrinated sheep take credit for it.

The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did'nt exist.

If the devil doesn't exist, then why wouldn't it be the result of Christians that led to the differant branches of faith? Glad to see your acknowledgement of the reality of God, Richard.

I did not say the devil did not exist, I just said he convinced you he did not exist, its a matter of perception. I'm going to try to convice people I'm god, just to see if I can score a cute nun or three

I think I've heard that before. From a Baptist preacher.

You're not a Baptist preacher in disguise, are you?
