The Church once had an ordained office to prevent irreverence
OMG!! You took the words right out of my mouth with this article!! I remember the "good ole days" with TOTAL admiration! I WANT and NEED my Church back! I can just hear my Dad and all of his ruminations prior to his death in 2004!! He wouldn't believe how the EVIL leadership in the Church are hell bent on destroying the sacredness of the Church! GOD HELP US AND SAVE US FROM THIS EVIL!
I see "All are Welcome" messages posted on church marquees throughout metro area, next to their empty parking lots, on Sundays.
