    I guess I understand why your church fired Rachel, but now she’s pregnant AND without income. Yes, she probably shouldn’t have had premarital sex if that’s a requirement of your church, but she could’ve aborted the baby. Instead, she made the best of a not-so-good situation and is getting married and will be raising her child. How terrible…

    I agree with you that there is a bit of hypocracy in your church. Church employees were so out of control that they couldn’t stop looking at internet porn, but they also couldn’t refrain from looking at it while at work. And yet they’re still employed there. Meanwhile, Rachel’s gone.

    How are you going to handle the Internet, Marvin? You can’t even handle JC Penny’s.

    Marvin, I’m sensing that when you say “That’s fine,” it really isn’t.

    Say, church ministry is often the stuff of scandal. If you want to read about such stuff that I got to watch first hand, pick up the newly released book “Fleeing Fundamentalism” by Carlene Cross. Carlene is the ex-wife of the pastor of the church I attended in the 80s. In the book, she recounts her difficult journey through religious nonsense in order to discover faith.

    Churches certainly do keep Satan busy.

    something doesn’t add up if your “brethren” have put you on staff to minister to homosexual strugglers and yet they are not the least bit tolerant of those who struggle heterosexually….yikes! be careful who you trust marvin!!!!
