Bynum's Back!

Former prophetess now dubbed "Christian Celebrity" Juanita Bynum is back in action.  After her celebrated divorce from Bishop Thomas Weeks III and a dust-up with the IRS, she's going to "preach" (more like scream) at a "Revival" in Tampa.  1,700 are expected!  She's ready for ministry again after "a re-birthing and redefining."  Maybe that's what I need.  Click here: Christian celebrity Juanita Bynum returns after delinquent tax and marriage problems - St. Petersburg Times

Meanwhile, Rev. Debra Hafner thinks the meaning of the recent ELCA decision regarding gay clergy overlooks single clergy who shouldn't be forced to miss out on sex just because they are not married.  "All of this is excellent news for same-sex couples, of course, but the emphasis on `committed, lifelong relationships' leaves out the single minister, the divorced minister, the widowed minister -- whether gay, straight, or bisexual -- who must still adhere to a standard of celibacy unless their partner status changes."  Hey, everybody's doing it, right?  Click here: Rev. Debra Haffner: Sex and the Single Minister

ELCA is a disgrace to all Lutherans. They otta just become Mormons or JW's and get it over with.

Concerning Rev. Debra Hafner, who by her statements shows a definite lack of reverence, as a Unitarian Universalist, her statements don't surprise me at all.

Debra Hafner - are you certain it isn't "Hefner?" The world is upside down and backwards, but thank God - it's still under His control!

Lloyd: I think the JWs and Mormons have higher standards than a large number of ELCA clergy.

What's a delinquent tax? Is it some kind of imposition on troublesome urban youths?

I'm not sure why the UU minister is complaining. Exactly what can you do in the UU church to get deposed from the ministry? Maybe affirm the Nicene Creed?

You've likely seen this before, but since you mentioned cats:

Cat theology: My human cares for me, feeds me, pampers me, worries about how I feel - I must be God!

Dog theology: My human cares for me, feeds me, pampers me, worries about how I feel - he must be God!

Re: Bynum

It's interesting to me how someone can schedule a revival. Since revival is a move of the Holy Spirit, one might just as well try to schedule a hailstorm. (Or maybe a tornado in Minneapolis.)
