    Ahhh... your indoctrination into the world of DC is almost complete. Hahaha... Church and politics go hand in hand in this city. I have learned to take the good with the bad and to selectively choose which dates to attend service. I love my church -- very much -- but on those days that Rev. Jesse Jackson is our "guest" preacher, I simply pass. I am a moderate conservative and I love politics as much as the next person (in this town) but not at church. While I understand the logistics and the motivation it simply does a disservice to the memory of church with my grandmothers when I was small... when the best thing to look forward to was grape juice on Communion Sunday. I know that church is bigger than that -- but shouldn't those memories that you take with you be as simplistically moving as grape juice for Communion?

    Good job... again.

    Chris,
    I don't understand what being gender neutral has to do with partisan politics. Many of us, male & female, believe that God is no more one gender than the other. Inclusive language is very much a spiritual matter to me. Talking about God as "He" all the time shuts out the possibility of how big God is.

    Also, what does global warming have to do with politics? The only connection I see is that one party is so far ahead of the other in addressing it, but that is changing thanks to Ahnold, FL Gov. Criss and others.

    I get uncomfortable when people try to separate how we act in the world as moral beings from religion. That is a part of my religion - a central part of it.

    Thanks for asking me to read your blog - you may rue the day you did, though.

    Sam
