Christians

ladyat, who I'm privileged to count a friend, tells us that her new day job is at an Episcopal church.  I wanted to preserve part of my comment there.

I'm not Christian, but I respect the people who are actually trying to live up to what I know of the teachings of Jesus. It's the ones who think carefully selected verses of Leviticus are more important that disgust, frighten, and infuriate me in turns. My knee-jerk reaction is to think of the latter kind whenever I hear words like "church" and "reverend". That's not the person I want to be, so I thank you for the opportunity to contemplate it.
