Re: Thank you New Zealand

When it comes to social conservatism, the question is very present in today's mainline protestant denominations in the U.S. As we discussed, the Episcopal Church has effectively schismed. My sister is a Methodist minister, and tells me that her denomination is now wrestling with the same issues (es...

Re: The Failure of the New Deal Democrat

Democrat voters. I've never voted for a Democrat in my life. You may not have but plenty of others have obviously done so.

Re: Not socialism but justice.

Thanks for the lengthy reply from which I learned new things. My comment is that whatever the reason that is making Ramphosa to appropriate the land without compensation, the end result will be the same. Economic decline.

Re: Thank you New Zealand

But with the so-called "Continuing Anglican" movement, nowadays it may be the former, as socially conservative Anglican parishes look for an ecclesiastical home more in line with their beliefs.

Re: The Failure of the New Deal Democrat

I know about those bills PC. Have known about them for some time.

Re: a Turkey waits to be plucked.

This authoritarian club of Erdogan, Trump and Putin (and junior partner Duterte) is rather scary to me. I just hope some uppance comes for Trump before his supporters let him pass his 'enabling act'! :lol: I doubt whether Trump could ever persuade even a Republican controlled Congress to give him s...
