I watched part of this documentary on how dangerous the Emergent and Purpose Drive churches are. I never paid attention to them, but now find that the so called preachers and leaders are reckless and leading their followers astray (to put it mildly).

The documentary is on Prime, but you can watch some of it on YouTube.

I also didn't know Bono of U2 was part of the Emergent church movement. I thought he was an Irish Catholic.

Bono was raised in a mixed household (not uncommon in Ireland), and despite receiving a Catholic baptism, he also attended Protestant services with the other half of the family. He's well known for attending all sorts of churches when travelling. He doesn't seem to be the kind looking to settle down in one place, spiritually or physically.

Seems like some famous musicians have troubles when touring. I do not envy their constant traveling.

That's how clowns make money.

Even Muslims don't recognize the OCA's autocephaly. EP is in good company.

Nothing to see here. Of course Muslims worship the same God as us. They are pretty much heretical Christians on par with the Jehovah's Witnesses and the like.

It's those fundamentalist JW terrorists that we need to worry about.

On a technical level, they are good, just vomit-inducing.
