How long does it take for a member to be able to participate in the Political forum ? I've contacted Fr. George but so far I'm not able to get to the forum.

Once you get into the political forum, are you allowed access to them all forever or do you have to apply each time a topic is shunted into politics?

You are given full access to them forever (though if you want you can PM Fr. George later to request removing your ability access them).

Raylight, besides being 'the man' at oc.net, Fr. George also moonlights as the Chancellor of the GOA metropolis of Pittsburgh, so I'm sure he has a lot on his plate. I'm sure he'll respond when he can though :)

Yes, the private forums are frightfully scary, in that ad hominems are allowed and encouraged.
It is the one place in this forum where people can vent and spit snake venom at each other.

Tread lightly.

Where do you think a breakfast sausage comes from?

Ground up snouts, left over scraps, etc. At least bacon are strips of fat and meat.

You left out that the sausage makings are stuffed into the cleaned-out intestines of the hog...at least at a traditional country butchering, which I've done many times.

should we wear virtual bullet proof vests in the private forums when we gain access. Fr.George when I originally contacted him made it clear it's anything goes just about.

bullet proof....nothing to lose....fire away fire away

Best not joined during Fasting periods, eh?

Quite true. The natives do get quite restless for their bacon and eggs.
I hate bacon. I'd rather have sausage and eggs.

I don't hate bacon, but sausage is definitely my breakfast meat of choice. 

God bless America for its breakfast traditions, I'm so glad my parents moved here.

I miss West Virginia...best 75 pounds I gained (at the time...all gone now)! :P

But you will admit that sausage is made of pig? So what if I'm eating everything but the pig's squeal? I like it better than bacon.

When it comes to desserts, all that matters is calories and carb intake.

If using pork lard makes it that good, I really don't care.

I don't do pork either. It doesn't agree with me.
I had one too many porcine hot dogs as a child in my 'pok n' beans'
Just smelling them makes me ill.

I am borderline diabetic, so I must watch my simple carbohydrate intake.
Fats are my friends, but not sugars.

Eating pork proves that your not a Muslim.  Or so saith the reconquista folks.  Bacon is irresistible and only fools dislike it.
