Thanks for making a good distinction between poorly chosen words and heterodox ideas. That is an important distinction to make.

And Charles knows you're right; he'll just never admit it.  8)

If you didn't come to KC for the NFL draft, you can always come to KC to see the Liberty Tower and the World War 1 museum. It's a fabulous museum, with a walkway that takes you over a field of artificial poppies.

I was going to post Flanders Fields, but I am glad that Charles already did that.

I didn't see the remake on Netflix but I have always loved Remarque's All Quiet on the Western Front.

Great pic Will!

To speak charitably of the new windows...they are windows. They keep out the elements. They have images you can look at.

I don't care for them, though I believe I knew back in the late 90s that this day was coming. The huge panes of glass was just begging for a donor to pony up the cash to put in stained glass. And I also believed that the window of St. Timothy and St. Titus would remain in place, since after all it was The Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus.

Now it is the Chapel of the Highest Bidder. Why not put the new windows in another building, or on the sides of the Nave and leave the chancel area alone?

And what happened to the original windows? They were taken down to be restored and then put back up? But that has been years now. Are they now in storage at the National Archives  between the Ark of the Covenant and the flight manifesto of all those who rode Jeffrey Epstein's Lolita Express?

In closing, the windows are there. They are okay. It's real disingenuous to have the Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus with no imagery regarding them.

Under Pres. Biden we blew up the Nordstream 2 pipeline and continue to encourage Ukraine to fight ours and NATOs proxy war with Russia, and we are encouraging a clash between Taiwan and China. Pres. Biden is an extremely moral president.

Meanwhile Julian Assange still isn't free, the railroad strike was crushed by the administration, the working class falls farther and farther behind while taxpayer dollars are wasted in Ukraine while no negotiating for peace takes place.

As we just saw on the draft from KC: I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm surveiled.

John's disciples did not have to give up following John. John's ministry led right to Jesus. John didn't have disciples as if he was the special one; John had disciples to teach them and prepare them for the one who ranked before John because Jesus was before John. The disciples of John paid attention and when John identified Jesus as the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world, they followed Jesus.

John and Jesus preached the same message. It was a natural progression from John the Baptist to Jesus.

Russia annexed territory in:

1992 Moldova
2008 Georgia
2014 Ukraine Crimea
2022 Ukraine eastern provinces, though with clear intent to take the capital

We did not intervene previously.  What do you suppose has changed for the US and NATO that are lending so much military aid now?

What changed? Money.  Western Europe started getting cozier with Russia, namely they started getting more energy sources (petroleum and natural gas) from Russia. The Nordstream and Nordstream 2 pipelines were built, which irritated the US. The US blew up the Nordstream 2 pipeline (according to individual studies by the Danes, Norwegians, and Swedes.)

The US was losing its preeminent spot as the supplier to Europe and Russia was moving in. NATO continued expanding and provoking Russia, now here we are fighting this proxy war. If it keeps going on Poland, a member  of the North Atlantic (?) Treaty Organization, is going to be invaded. When that happens US soldiers will be on the move and killed in this war.

That's what changed.

Yet if you were near Dayton you had access to Skyline Chili, which is most definitely culinary best practice!

I didn't know George Will is an atheist. I do know he is a Cubs fan. That certainly qualifies for foolishness.

Peter, your last post was good in revealing this tempest in a thimble. This whole issue is so disheartening. The arguments are about people and not the words in the book, which it appears few have actually read. I haven't, and probably wasn't going to buy it.

Thanks Charles, for calling me to task. I should have used Sarah's name, but it is pretty hard to do after what she did to my family in the name of journalism. But I should be more mature and should not have resorted to a form of dead-naming. I used to be fairly close with Sarah and when we'd go out with Lakshmi Sing, Tamara Keith, and Aisha Roscoe for cocktails, the laughs were hale and hearty. Oh man, Tamara has moves like Jagger. But now, well, it brings a tear to my eye and I feel badly over the tension that exists now when we go out and Sarah and Robin Young walk into the same bar as us. It's my issue and not theirs. In God's time Sarah and I will patch things up.

That's very cool! Thank you for brightening my day with a story of God's grace and provision.

It was noticeable to me in listening to Morning Edition how incredulous the hosts (Steve Inskeep, A Martinez, and a female) were that the March for Life was even taking place, as if the Dobbs decision meant the end of the road for the anti-abortion (NPR's preferred term) folks had won and that there was no need for marching any more.  The people interviewed in the story were all people in favor of access to "women's health."

But comparing early 80s ELCA with 2009 ELCA is practically impossible. The two are not the same. I think it would have been much easier for the two churches to get along in the 80s when the drifting apart was not as noticeable. By 2009 the drift apart had been going on for decades. Both denominations would have looked much more similar in the 80s.

Thanks for the synopsis Dan. It seems as if the same fear is present, it just resides on the other side. Those afraid of what Pope Benedict XVI might have done are now feeling free while the supporters of Benedict are now sounding the alarms. What did Qoholeth say? Nothing new under the sun. I wish Benedict would not have retired and would have allowed the Roman Church to care for him and love him in his old age. As it is, they showed great love to him in his retirement.

There are ways to access New York Times articles, which often appear in other newspapers around the country. Look around. Do some basic research. Or spend a little money.

Charles Arrogant: Mortgage, kid about to go to college, kids still at home, utilities, life...I don't subscribe to media or state media like the Times or the Post. A fair use quote should not go against your "ethics."

Oh, and use the quote feature.

Oh, and Fletch is a real human being (completely viable btw). I've shaken hands with him/her/they, so please stop with the whining of this poster's anonymity.
