Down the Catholic church?
Additionally, there are tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of educational institutions worldwide, from kindergarten through graduate university programs, which openly acknowledge their affiliation with this organization.They are so powerful and brazen that many of these members don't even hide their membership.
I just want to take a moment to note here that @FBG Moderator has 316 likes but only 315 posts. I'm thinking there's something going on here too.It's not tolerated. Helps a ton if people will use the report button instead of assuming stuff is tolerated when it hasn't been seen by a moderator.

Noones trying to bury anything. This is just inevitably going to get political, so why not save us all the extra step.matuski said:Why are you trying to bury this?
Reads like garbage written by the worst kind of poet: an Irish poet.Most people know ilov80s is someone I consider a friend. That was a joke that might not be tolerated on this board, but made me and others smile because ilov has a great rep and has demonstrated that often.
Let it go.
I'm a Roman Catholic and found it funny because of the distinction.
Let's switch it up and post a real Irish poem by one person who contemplated God and the importance of God in the world:
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction,
while the worst Are full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?
My favorite are the trolls who have 3x-4x more likes than posts.
I'd like to say the time away allowed me to reflect on my actions so that I can become a better citizen of the board. However, it just hardened me to life. I made a lot of bad connections during my time away. I had been on the board for over 10 years without a suspension. Now that I've been beaten down by the man and forced to mingle with the other cast-offs and misfits of the internet, I just don't know if I can over go straight again.You're Back!!!
