This is right up there with the Catholic Diocese of D.C. "If we have to provide charity support to gay people, too, we won't do it for anyone." (can't find the link, but the District of Columbia says that any organization that takes public money for charities can't discriminate among the recipients).

I don't remember Jesus checking photo IDs, in fact I remember him sticking up for Samaritans and other people that weren't the jet-chariot-set.


And LJ seems to have lost about a third of my icons, the barstids.

You know LJ is run by the Яussians now... it's all that trafficking in eastern-orthodox icons that's the cause. Someone's skimming off the top...

I like the idea of the Patriarch having an iPhone with eastern-orthodox icons that call up iBlessing, PopeTalk, FindASaint...

Hmm... Pope Talk. You know, the Orthodox and the Catholics have been in a Cold war for a lot longer than the US and the USSR... do you suppose there's a Red Phone connecting Rome and Constantinople, or Rome and Moscow?
