Churches make a drastic pledge in the name of social justice: To stop calling the police
Now, the church has joined a small handful of like-minded congregations with a radical goal: to stop calling the police. Not for mental health crises, not for graffiti on their buildings, not even for acts of violence. These churches believe the American police system, criticized for its impact especially on people of color, is such a problem that they should wash their hands of it entirely.
‚ÄúCan this actually be reformed, when it was actually created for the unjust distribution of resources or to police black and brown bodies?‚ÄĚ Torbett asked. For her and for her fellow church members, the answer is no ‚ÄĒ the police don‚Äôt just need reform. The police need to be abandoned altogether....
Religion: Churches make drastic pledge in the name of Christian Liberty
Churches in just about all denominations in every single country have made a pledge to tolerate Christian Liberty by not calling anyone a heretic, this idea was prompted by a megachurch, allegedly it started with a layman who said,
"You know, there's a lot of folk who claim to be Christians, and they teach some wild and zany things, even denying the saving work of Jesus, but I guess it's their opinion." The pastor, who was sitting on his barstool like chair said, "That's a great idea, but we have to give it a holier sounding name...I've got it, it's their Christian Liberty!"
And with that the congregation readily accepted it, and the idea has been growing ablaze. Constable Fishbottom said, "What a simply splentastic idea, now I won't have to deal with those blasted Unitarians."
There has been at least 5 revivals already who have walked the aisle and confessed Jesus to be whoever they want him to be. Marcion delivered a sermon entitled, "Why I removed like half of the gospel of Matthew."
At publishing time, Pope Francis tweeted, "May the holy mother of God pour out her blessings on this ecumenical newfangled gospel."
Ummm, sin makes you crazy. And it may mean that the person who drank themselves or drugged themselves to being homeless needs the police more than ever.but, if the universal church of paganism wants to not call the police, why stop there. Have vagrants live with the ‚Äúminister‚ÄĚ and when judgement day comes, I hope someone has had the word preached , lest one finds themselves in hell.

Poor soul gets real confused on cloudy days. On that account, he jist looks at his arm to see what his tan's doin'. Sometimes tho, his arm is too dirty to see the tan, so he ends up at his appointments way to early. Kinda embarrassin'!
Well, they found the rotary phone at the normal people's landfill at the bottom of the mountain, and think it's a computer. They haven't figured out the sundial yet, but think it's some sort of a weapon or homing device left behind by aliens.
