Software Developer, part-time pastor, and I raise chickens. Who can't love a chicken?

For Christianity.stackexchange.com, my religious background:

  • Grew up in a Protestant, evangelical, nondenominational "Bible Church" (-1990)
  • earned a M.Div at a Baptist Seminary (2008) and pastored a very small Baptist church (2004 - 2008)
  • Served in an Episcopal Church, and yes I did that site. (2008 - 2013)
  • Now attending a Baptist church that has a true passion for breaking down the barriers of church so as to focus on the original mission of the church - namely to bring Jesus to a dying world.

comment The differences between Roman Catholic and Irish Catholic
Admittedly, your answer reminded me of a scene from 30 Rock, where Jack Donaghy explains to Tracy Jordan the difference between Irish and Roman Catholic, and it all boils down to guilt and the ability to get forgiven for anything just by doing confession.

comment The differences between Roman Catholic and Irish Catholic
Welcome to C.SE! Your second paragraph here is a little closer to what we are looking for - answers that actually engage the question! Im leaving in your first, however, as I suspect you are using it to attest to your credentials. Ideally, a little more sourcing and reference to authorities beyond yourself would be helpful.

Am I also allowed to say there is a politics.se? I hear the moderator there is a real jerk, but it exists. This question is better here, however...

From what tradition? A Baptist would have wildly different views than a Catholic here...

comment How many people are killed by Sanhedrin around the Paul era?
This is a good question! A good answer should acknowledge Paul's part in the killing of Christians - per Acts 7.

I guarantee you at least one French nun and one Indian woman do!
