What Has the General Assembly Ever Done for Us?

Some of my Presbyterian colleagues are goofier than the Madhatters. The latest is this guy's big celebration about his presbytery putting the General Assembly "on notice" a year after the event. On notice for what? Who knows for sure. But it is a tea party! And its about freedom! And teh Gay! And Jesus! And the Bible! It is decisive action by these faithful watchmen and shepherds. Amen. Amen and Amen again.

Alan has a fine take on the Beaver-Butler buffoonery.

Our man in Pennsylvania infiltrated the Confessing Presbyterians Double Secret Meeting and filmed the proceedings:


  1. A bizarre amalgam of Gladys Kravitzy, Betty Bowers, and Stephen Colbert.

    In other words, the busybodies, tattletales, fusspots and scolds have put us "on notice."



  2. doh.

    Wrong link

  3. John, I thank God for you and Alan and other voices of sanity, in the face of Beavis and Butthead's ongoing... predictability.


  4. Alan, Awesome photo!

    Cecilia, they are predictable all right.

  5. Thanks John.

    Now the PCUSA and squirrels know they're on my list. :)

  6. I couldn't use the link, Alan. It is cut off in the comments section below. If it is worth it, John, maybe you can repost it?

  7. How did the PC(USA) end up in that photo?

  8. Just so you know.

    Everyone who has now commented on this post is on notice.

  9. Uh-oh

    There goes my secret clearance

  10. First time I've ever been listed in the company of Barbara Striesand. I feel so honored.

  11. :) We're *above* Babs? That seems heretical somehow, but that's only par for the course for you, John. ;)

    If you don't watch it, you might crowd out Michael Bay on my On Notice list. :)
