    meaning things the CR types interpret as religious practices in place before Jesus.  In parts of the OT there are a lot of lists of temple-specific practices, and dietary laws, and so forth - those things the CR types no longer believe to be enforced by God.  (In short, because of Jesus they can eat shrimp and wear cotton-poly blends! Yays!)

    The CR types scare me.  Then again, so do Dominionists.

      Cotton-poly blends are actually okay by the Hebrew Bible; the only forbidden mixed fabric is linen-wool.  Shrimp are still verboten, though.

      I don't know a whole lot about Dominionists, but what I have heard is unnerving.
