Of all the weekends to be out of town

While I'm not te activist from hell like gothic_oreo is, I'm about ready to start.

This weekend, while I will be in St. Louis for a wedding, "Dubya" will be speaking at commencement at OSU. Also, PC(USA) (aka my old church from my xtian days) is holding its General Assembly here in Columbus, complete with voting on GLBT rights within the church and the wording on the doctrine of salvation.

Since I think everyone knows why I hate the prez, let me explain why I get so frustrated with my old church. Last year's GA voted to allow non-celibate GLBT people to become ordained. (Ordination primarily means Ministers, but also includes the Deacons and Elders, who run the church. In theory, I should be defrocked, since I served on a few of the commities while I was in high school. However, since I no longer believe that Jesus ids the only path, I'm no longer xtian. ) However, that amendment got shot down by the presbyteries. So basically, everyone in the church has to conform to "fidelity in marriage or chastity in singleness". The amendment that got that added to the constitution got all kinds of flack, since elders everywhere were wondering about enforcement. Case in point, my mother asked Rev. Hilkerbaumer if he was going to show up every night in her bedroom to make sure she was alone. So, the issue of GLBT rights will probably generate debate agin this year, and knowing the "frozen chosen", they'll table discussion for another 3 years.:P
The other issue that's got everyone's panties in a wad is that of the old confession. The new conservative (read:reactionary) "Confessing Church" movement wants to change the wording of one confession from "We believe Jesus is the path to salvation" to "We belive that Jesus is the ONLY path to salvation".
I wish I didn't have to go to this wedding. I'd love to go get my nose out of joint telling people how I feel.
Oh, an aside to my roomies. I know we're all sharing the toothpaste, but could ya'll please squeeze from the bottom instead of the head? I'm a bit anal about such things some days. Thanks!
This aside has been brought to you by the institue of Pavlovian psych, where if you post it in LJ, they salivate.

Booger head, I do squeeze from the bottom of the tube. Talk to the roommate that doesn't have an LJ.

Scarey aside, he mentioned something about getting one the other day. HEHEHEHEHAHAHAHHAHA

Guess, I just lost my forum for bitching about him. Oh wait I know how to use those custom filters now. Yay, I don't have to worry about it anymore. giggle

Well, unless someone gives him a CODE...

I really don't see him paying for an account on here.
