Feedback and Notes

Due to Ning (our Web hosting company) being bought recently from the ashes of Mode Media we often experience 500 connection errors. Our apologies but these errors are out of our control. Hopefully, this will improve as the new company gains experience. Regards, AU

"Hi Elana, Interesting. I haven't met many retired clergy. You of course know that there are support groups for retired clergy, or clergy in crisis of faith."

Bill Nye Speaks out about Creationism Video on ABC

"He is exactly correct.  Teaching children that 'faith' based beliefs are more accurate then real world evidence based theories is, in my opinion, a form of child abuse. "

"Just more of the creeping religiousness that is attempting to (1) make the USA a Xian theocracy, and (2) keep the voters fighting one another so they don't notice the uber rich grabbing even more power and wealth.  Divide and conquer."

Elana replied to Alayna's discussion Mother Theresa: Faithless Fraud and Hypocrite

Hi Elana,

Interesting. I haven't met many retired clergy.

You of course know that there are support groups for retired clergy, or clergy in crisis of faith.
