A lesbian presbyterian is either referred to as a Lesbyterian or a Presbo. :)

lol I just heard a radio ad for local lawyers who say they're "caring lawyers" and their website is caringlawyers.com and they assure you in their slogan that they don't use gimmicks or slogans 😁

Craving the simplistic world we knew long ago where zits were the depths of our fears as we drowned these fears in Arbys? One day we will look back at today and wish we could go back to the simplicity of 2020.

I didn't know the Arby's logo was a hat until a few years ago.

Vapid, vapid bologna. The history of the canon of Scripture forever inoculated me against all such nonsense.

Cowboys wrangle cows and wear hats.
And they serve the cows, therefore their logo is a hat. Makes total sense.

I have to admit, the last one hollering "I AM FIRST AMONG EQUALS!" made me laugh pretty heartily. LOL

I don't know if I'm old or don't know English properly (or both) but it amuses me that forum software names messages as "content". Seems very social media-ish. I wish it would name users as "influencers" too.

I dunno, I've always thought of forums as social media, just of a different type; same with sites like Youtube, Twitch and Discord: maybe they're not social media in the mold of Facebook/Instagram/Myspace, but they still count imo.

I guess you're right but since this forum is mostly text-based it doesn't feel like other social medias. It feels more... old-fashioned? I don't know.

At the same time that I was reading That All Shall Be Saved I was also getting a lot of takeout from Burger King, so now I have an enduring association of David Bentley Hart with Burger King in my mind 🙃

How did you like it? I listened it some years ago. I found it interesting although Hart seemed a bit too edgy at times. The book would have been better without Hart's constant gripes at people disagreeing with him.

Yeah, he tends to be his own worst enemy. And he seems to think that if you're like, say, Met. Kallistos, and only "hope for" the redemption of all, then you're just as bad off as the "infernalists." He generally avoids going straight for the jugular of saints and keeps his attacks more for post-schism western writers and modern ones, but when he makes generic claims like that the traditional/majority position is "sheer moral squalor" he's basically attacking all the saints along with the rest. Because the book leans towards philosophy more than theology, when I reread it I paired it with A Larger Hope? by Ilaria Ramelli, which gathers together many of the (according to her) pro-universalist patristic passages. I'm still not convinced by Hart's position, though I'm closer to it than I am the majority one.
