The thread title says it all.  Join me in welcoming the newest moderator!

WORTHY! 
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.""

Memory eternal!
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.

Axia!!!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Worthy, the only spider I don't want to crush underfoot at first sight.  :)

The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, OC.net is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...

That's one worthy cause to go to the bar for.

I'd gladly have a cup of cider or more for Arachne myself!  :)

No house should be left without cider, and even better if it's pear, too. ;)

Thanks for the well-wishes, everyone; lots of new corners to swing by!
