    just another sign. one of many. sorry if you can't see it.

    next:

    That was a great article and he put it all in perspective. I cannot believe the Presbyterian Church did this. I stopped going to a Presbyterian Church (I went with my wife - she drug me along) when I started noticing their apathy toward the war on terrorism and the war in Iraq. I had thought that maybe my experience was just isolated. I guess I was wrong.

    Sorry but the conpiracy theorists have been at this for over 1,000 years---sooner or later the "world" will end and they will be right.

    I still attend a Presbyterian Church regularly and maybe it is a southern thing but my church is very supportive of the liberation of Iraq and the war on terror. If I may ask, what church do you go to now?

    yes, eventually the world will end. Whether that would be because the core cools down, hardens, and the earth dies or because the people of the world left gods chosen people to their own devices and the biblical prophecies become reality is something I'd like to be made aware of.

    First, understand, I'm not a Presbyterian. I'm not a christian. I'm not relgious at all.



    Calling for the abandonment and economic strangulation of a democratic state seems pretty immoral to me, especially considering the situation Israel is in, surrounded by enemies, and attacked daily.

    I can't imagine that the majority of Presbyterians agree with their Church leaders' proclamations, and I suppose there's something to be said for that as well.

    I also wonder what, if any, biblical verses they think justify their decision.

    As I said, I sent the article to my pastor. I wasnt familiar with the author of the article posted, therefore, I will reserve judgement until I hear from someone that actually attended the conference. I will report back with what I learn if you are interested.
