“No man is ordained a Baptist minister who isn’t prepared to think the worst of his congregation.”—Ode to Billy Joe

I suppose this is practical advice, but one should always look for the face of Christ in everyone.

I find the current header picture somewhat offensive and sacrilegious. Countries are the invention of the God-less Enlightenment; flags of "countries" have no place the holy sanctuary.

Are you referring to the Vatican flag?

TJM:
Yes, any secular flag. The Vatican flag represents the Vatican as a state, not the Holy Church.

What about any woman ordained a Baptist minister? There are a few of those here and there.

As for countries being an invention of the Godless (?) enlightenment, does Victor oppose eliminating all national boundaries? Sounds like the "open borders" of the Democrats, or "one world" government. No thanks....

Countries are selfish constructs, if not base animal territorial instincts. All I am advocating is not to use secular symbols of man's selfishness and pride in the holy sanctuary.
