Reg, thank you for another excellent list of reading to further our knowledge and give us pause. In my area its too cold to leave the house. Reading will be a good activity.
In that first link, if I understand correctly, the writer suggests there are probably some politicians who tell lies! I need to think about that for a while.
Wow, that Italian priest pimped out his 15 lovers! I've wasted my life. Priest has 15 lovers, but a poor atheist spent his life with, at most, one at a time. Fifteen!
Not quite the same situation, but where is Steven Lynch when we need him?
Each week, while compiling this post, I discover several reports about fraudulent, corrupt, sexually deviant, drug or alcohol fuelled and generally dishonest priests, pastors and other “men of God” from around the world. Many of them are too gross to consider reporting them so now I try to keep it to one or two per month.
I hope the weather eases up soon for you Daniel. I will sacrifice a goat tomorrow if you think that might help :-)
Reg, I think you are doing the right thing. For a while, I had google news alerts for search terms like "priest arrested" or "pastor convicted" or bishop arrested" in various combinations. My inbox was swamped every week. It did no good to follow that. It does a lot of good to seek positive change, honorable and beneficial.
I hope you did not sacrifice any goats on my behalf. The waterline or pump froze dammit, they have to thaw before I know what happened. That's a price I pay for country living :-) but it's worth it
Thank you for Sunday School Reg!!!
