Heretical Churches Losing Members
A CNN (Caveman News Network) Report


News Item: Mainline Protestant denominations have steadily declined in membership for four decades in the U.S. Let’s look at just two.

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) says its membership dropped 1.6% in 2005, to 4.85 million. Over the past 15 years, the baptized membership of the denomination has fallen by about 390,000, with half of that decline occurring between 2002 and 2005.

As of 2000, real losses of the United Methodist Church, adjusted for the increase in the general population, are 6,435,331 members or 43.6%!!

News Item: Some denominations that ordain women are seeing the percentages balloon, Religion News Service says. The Episcopal Church went from 8 percent priestesses in 1986 to 30 percent in 2006, while the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America rose to 15 percent (1995) to 24 percent (2006). Other increases include the Presbyterian Church (USA) and United Methodists.

Hmmmm....does any seem to notice a connection here? No wonder the feminists, libs, and Roman Protestants that want to destroy the Church are so anxiously pushing for priestesses.

Sorry, gals. "Male and female He created them." Jesus was a man. When the celebrant is at the altar or in the confessional, he is acting in persona Christi. You can play dress up all you want, but you will never be a man or a priest. His mother understood this, why can't you?

What? You mean people don't like women pretend priests?

Seriously though, can you imagine being a guy down at the local splitter church, and Rev. Bob leaves, only to be replaced one Sunday by Rev. Cyndi? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot! That's like Charlie Weis being replaced one Saturday by Rosie O'Donnell. With the exception of the hardcore wacko liberals - that's gonna drive people away. The beauty is, the more the Church comes back in line, the more B16 can clean things up, the more these people will come home to Rome.

Speaking of Weis, how bout' them Irish?

Hey guys, great blog... and brilliant post!

I'm a woman. I love being a woman. I recognise that there are differences between men and women (hey, I studied biology and psychology) We're different. But complimentary. Unisex is one of the biggest lies ever told... no woman I know ever wants to go to a unisex hairdresser! Women can have babies... men can't. Men can be priests... women can't. It's not saying that one sex is better than the other. It's saying they're different. Simple. So why can't the liberals and so-called feminists get the point?

Mac,
Thanks for the feedback. And as Vir has posted more than once, he knows where his territory ends and Mrs. Caveman's starts (don't we all! haha)

If the feminists, et al, were like you and appreciated their femininity -- and all its gifts -- instead of coveting the masculinity they can never have, they might appreciate this joke a lady friend told me once:

A man's best friend is a dog. Diamonds are a girl's best friend. Tell me who's stupid.

Then there's the one about the Garden of Eden and God having only two gifts left in this creation bag....
(sorry, even here in the cave we have SOME boundaries!
