  •  Pastor Kevin never read the Catechism I did (1+ / 0-)

    ...and God is just so upset, He hates it when man are not manly in their approach.
    God is upset?  Seriously?  This is God we're talking about here.  All those years ago, I learned that sin doesn't hurt God's feelings;  He does not fly into a rage or perpetrate a psychodrama over sin.  He is offended by sin.

    I suppose there's always the excuse that the pastor is not Catholic, so why should his thinking conform in any way to Catholic doctrine, but anybody who might spend a little time thinking seriously about a monotheistic god will deduce that if such an entity exists, his/her/its motivations and ways of behavior will be quite foreign to those of mortals.  What it suggests is that Pastor Kevin really has not thought about God terribly deeply.  Indeed, it seems Pastor Kevin has a hard time separating his own particular likes and dislikes from those of the supreme being.  I'm reminded of novelist Ann Lamott's line:

    You can safely assume that you've created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.
    One last item:
    God does not want men to be androgynous and feminine like in their approach; He gave them facial hair for a reason.
    Um, what about those ethnicities where men can't grow facial hair?  And if facial hair is so special, why do most Evangelical men shave it off?
