What are your thoughts?  In what ways is the church the devil's playground?  In my former career as a pastor, I had quietly come to this realization because of the injustices I often saw Christians commit against other Christians within the church, as well as to others outside the church.  It was often disheartening to see Christians talk so high and mighty about how worthy they were to "the Lord,"  and yet all the while be exactly the opposite.  It was even more damning and disgusting when I became the target of such ill will, when it came to putting child safety over church politics.  So I wonder what any of your thoughts were - particularly those who are former Christians.  What say you?

Please note, that I use the term "devil" not in it's generally accepted theological sense of an actual anthropomorphic being, but as a more loosely personification of the concept of evil and the injustices human beings often commit against each other.

No I haven't.  I tend to just kind of "wing it."

If you should find investigating their adminstrative order to be of interest, your reflections would be of interest.

@Mo- He is Bubble Bob - a professional excusist - as Emperor Milos Master of deflection, misdirection and condescension. I hope he comes back :)

Strega gave him a serving that was absolutely brilliant.

I hope the White Unicorn was of help in your fight against heathens.

Love it.  And, don't forget, it wasn't just the molestation.  There was a cover up as well.  That means that the statistics are unreliable and that the church as a whole is complicit.
