Today must be a fun day inside of all those evangelical churches

Obama reelected, the first gay US senator elected, gay marriage legalized in three states and weed legalized in two states.

I wonder what all those pastors are going to rant about today.

2. Not a Twitter person per se, but I'm still laughing at this:

 

Marriage equality AND marijuana laws passed? Now we know what Leviticus really meant by "A man who layeth with another man must be stoned." ~ George Takei

3. I am sure there is joy within the United Church of Christ (UCC)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Church_of_Christ

They are a mainstream protestant EVANGELICAL church.

I am sure the fundamentalists churches are ranting and railing, though

6. I'm not religious, but I like the UCC

While other church marquees here in town read "God Bless the United States of America" in the run-up to the Iraq war, the local UCC's marquee read, "May God forgive us." A lot of other churches were probably calling them a bunch of peace-loving hippie freaks (and worse), but they were on the right side of history.

12. I come from a long line of Roman Catholics

... went to school with a lot more .

They were (almost all ... I am sure it was not unanimous but I can't think of one that is not a Democrat) all over joyed by the Obama victory

13. Yes, indeed. Although, the former Catholics I know who became fundies are livid.

Sucks to be them.

14. Not my nutjob boyfriend.

The catholic vote was actually a 50-50 split. It was a pew poll: Don't have a quick link.

I do know that the Catholic Bishops insisted a pre-election anti-Obama letter was read in all conforming congregations.

So, the catholics are not a safe bet.

My local catholic church (I've never been inside, not catholic, myself) had hundreds of little blue flags in the front yard for all of the unborn babies aborted.....

Pretty angry stuff.

17. Mrs. WCGreen's cousin is accenting to lead the UCC which, is located

here in Cleveland.

They built an Hotel above their office space and they did it right by the new Sports Complex. Smart people.

If after the service the church offers free kool-Aid for all. Don't drink it!!

5. It would almost (ALMOST) be worth it

to go to the nearby Southern Baptist megachurch just to hear the wailing and see the rending of garments.

8. One pro Obama pastor said the following: Sometimes the pew is more sophisticated

than the pulpit.

20. My Church was happy

I was raised Roman Catholic (and in parishes and schools that were pretty liberal), but I attend an Apostolic Catholic church. It's got all the goodies of Catholicism, except they don't believe the Pope is infallible, they ordain women, they don't preach hard against contraception and abortion, the priests can marry and they accept the gays. A good portion of our congregation is gay. Our pastor is openly gay. They so perform gay wedding ceremonies even though it's not legal in our state. It is refreshing to go to a Church like that.
