Call Me Brother Spike of Forgiveness

Filed under: Random Stuff — Bob Gifford @ 11:54 am

After serious thought, I’ve decided to align myself with the Unitarian Jihad.

But, you might say, you are not a Unitarian! To which I reply that anyone can be a Unitarian, and you don’t even have to change what you believe! But in truth, all I really want is my own Unitarian Jihad Name:

My Unitarian Jihad Name is: Brother Spike of Forgiveness. What’s yours?

If there were a Lutheran Jihad, and they were giving out Lutheran Jihad Names, I wouldn’t have had to join the Unitarian Jihad. But the Lutherans are all distracted by this Sexuality Task Force, so they haven’t gotten around to forming a Solidarity with Unitarian Jihad Task Force. But then, if they did, they would recommend that:

    We not change our policy of condemning Jihadish behavior, but…

    …we forego disciplinary action towards Lutheran clergy that, for reasons of conscience, make common cause with Unitarian Jihadis…

    …and we continue to dialogue regarding whether the ELCA desires to allow the Jihad issue to divide our church.

Of course, there would also be the dissenting view from the Word Alone Lutherans that, since Luther opposed actions against civil authority, any cooperation with the Unitarian Jihad makes us un-Lutheran, or worse, Calvinist.

  3. It was said: “I reply that anyone can be a Unitarian, and you don’t even have to change what you believe! But in truth, all I really want is my own Unitarian Jihad Name” Methinks this is wrong headed understanding of “being a Unitarian!” One might think that a more appropriate name is: Brother Spike of Missed the Mark and Fallen into Pool of Cognitive BullS***! If you really want to beCome a Unitarian please support my ministry (43rd year now) with a sizable check. Write me privately and I will tell you where to send it. In the meantime we can remain together in that wonderful consubstantial pool of love.
