I believe this says everything I want to say on the subject of God.

"Everything?"

I believe that when PeaceBang is six feet under, there will still be more she wants to say on the subject of God -- and any number of other topics.

PeaceBang is one of those lucky people whose well the Holy Spirit keeps filling faster than she can pump it out. Even if she does have a pretty powerful pump and the Holy Spirit pauses once in a while to fill up someone else's dry hole.

I find it deplorably and somewhat disturbingly ironic that U*U minister Rev. Victoria Weinstein chose to conclude her sermon that trots out the old God as love theme by quoting a now "retired" Unitarian*Universalist minister who was accused of, and apparently found guilty of. . . clergy sexual misconduct.

And "would that we might pass beyond the word into the experience." (Richard Kellaway)

The letter to the editor by Polly T. Strife about U*U minister Rev. Richard A. Kellaway's alleged, and apparently real. . . clergy sexual misconduct is well worth a read.

Don't even think about censoring this post Peacebang or I will consider you to be an accessory after the fact involved in cover-up and denial of U*U clergy sexual misconduct.

The use of a flawed person's words doesn't much bother me. Qoholeth reminds us at Ecclesiastes 7:20 that "there is not a righteous man on earth who does good and never sins", and St. Paul reminds us at Romans 3:23 that "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God".

Hey Emerson Avenger,
I suppose we shouldn't use Martin Luther King's words, either, because he was a serial adulterer, including with women from his own congregation.
Not to mention John F. Kennedy or Moses, for that matter, because as we know, Moses was a murderer who hid a man in the sand.

It's a fine point, but most ministers that I know feel that including a quote from a sinner now and then isn't exactly tantamount to condoning the sinner's actions. It's a good quote. Just because it wasn't a good ministry doesn't mean that the guy couldn't string together a few words effectively.

And don't threaten me on my blog, Robin. I'll delete you any time I feel like it, which is likely to be the next time you post anything here.
