An example of a poster that I probably don't agree with on most issues but is a great FF.

I'd be a little concerned because his political worldview is almost diametrically opposite mine, but he otherwise seems like a great guy, so I wouldn't be disappointed, no.

No to either Wolverine22 or RR1997.

Good.

Obviously to the right.

Seems pretty cool from what I've seen of him so far.

I'm not doing too well right now. Among other things going on in my life, a psychiatric medication that I started a few months ago is causing marked weight gain and if I don't stop it I will continue to gain weight even if I eat less and exercise more and it may eventually induce diabetes even though I have no family history of that. Now I need to spend weeks on end taking progressively less and less of this stuff so that going cold turkey doesn't crash my endocrine system. This is exactly why I wanted to avoid going back on medication.

Also, a friend for whom I have, shall we say, strong feelings is being really terse with me over email because she's so overworked and unhappy. I'm at a point where I don't really know what to say to her, even though I really want to try to arrange to spend time with her because I haven't seen her in a while.

Also, I suffered what I'd politely term a bad psychological (specifically, depressive) episode and had to take a medical leave of absence from divinity school.

Moderate HP. I'd be very, very (unpleasantly) surprised if presuppositional apologetics had ever actually convinced more than a tiny handful of people of anything.

A weird mix of Kennedy and Scalia.

Seriously. How tantalizing (for, you know, what it was), and what a disappointment. I mean, at least 'no consensus' (which is how this is being reported) is less bad than an actively reactionary consensus, and at least Cardinal Burke has been demoted, but still.

A 1774 copy of the New England Primer.

Yeah, Mung Beans, dude, we didn't need to know this about you.

Cardinal Burke, one of the main opponents to the report, which is Chief Justice of Vatican Supreme Court is apparently being moved to the position of patron of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, which is a ceremonial and powerless office.

Oh thank goodness.

Why are we referring to this in the past tense, or with the phrase, "as a kid"?

Because 13 year age limit.

I'm pretty sure Joe is implying--correctly--that it's still very possible to enjoy this as an adult.

Breyer for Vega.

I think there has been some past discussion of this regarding BRTD and Nathan, and I think that would be quite funny.

That wasn't so much Crossarmed Opposites as The Odd Couple.

'Heart wrenching' would not be my or any human's first choice of adjective for Gone Girl.

ISIS is Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (or 'and Sham', the direct transliteration of the word that's used in Arabic); ISIL is Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant.

It doesn't seem like Bushie's Bible study is teaching him very theologically sophisticated interpretations.

"Interpretations"? You have read what this literalist church is like?

Yes. They lie to themselves and others about their interpretations being interpretations.

There are a number of stories in the Bible that genuinely do teach or purport to teach the lesson of submission to God's commandments. To try to apply the same lesson to every story in the Bible, especially one as challenging--as easy to interpret in pat and glib and compassionless ways and as rewarding not to--as Mark 14, smacks at best of laziness.
