No, but what jesus really did say is probably more meaningful.

"Let he who is without sin cast the first stone."

with the implication, heavily smeared in, that the people who were dragging the "whore" out into street to be stoned, were likely making use of prostitutes, and were equally sinful, and had no grounds to claim any kind of moral high-ground.

Often, the people that are the hardest on homosexuals, are the ones that harbor secret homosexual tendencies themselves, and or-- are closet homosexuals that hate their own homosexuality (for a variety of reasons.)  In this case, you gotta wonder why they want to "go easier" on kid-diddling clergy, and go full "Hellfire condemnation" on people who engage in consensual sex with other adults. 

Let he who is without sin cast the first stone indeed.

No, clearly that passage means that only the priesthood can call to condemn people, as the priesthood is by definition without sin. Bang. Interpreted.

Can you imagine having to actually work with him?
Remember the talk before about how Trump was only running so he could get a lucrative book deal out of the campaign? Well, looks like there's definitely going to be a lucrative book deal coming out of this... It'll just be in the hands of Woodward.

Anyways, that's terrifying. I know the presidency looks bad from the outside, but I wanted to think that there was at least a scrap of competence in the inner workings.

I agree with Urist. Steampunk is like Darth Vader winning Holland's Next Top Model. It would be awesome but not something I'd like in this game.

Speaking of God, his spokesman is apparently in hot water. Apparently some people want him to be MORE forgiving of the pedophiles inside the church, but LESS forgiving of the gays outside of the church.

This makes sense, of course, because Jesus was all about having an unaccountable priesthood and lots and lots of judging of everyone else.
Man, the sedevacationists are really popping up everywhere.

I mean, given that I am a filthy apostate pagan this is just amusing and more future potential research material, but still.

Nah, used to be catholic, hence the apostate. Also am henotheist.

Yeah, we shower way more than pretty much everyone else. We are filthy with communism.

Orthodoxy is the only correct religion you all should know. It's in the name. "Orthodox". It's right there guys. Names don't lie. Show me proof that names lie and I will show you hateful lies!

Also turnout was up in New York primaries yesterday. But that wasn't a sign of progressive strength (at least not on a state level): Cynthia Nixon beat the previous liberal challenger's turnout by quite a lot, but the same was true of Governor Cuomo, who crushed her 2-1. But more locally, in the State Senate, 6 of 8 of the rebel democrats who caucused with Republicans (and helped Republicans control Albany despite being a minority) have been felled by progressive challengers, meaning that, if Democrats defeat even one Republican in November, Democrats will finally take control of Albany. It's especially notable as the Independent Democratic caucus, as the rebels were called, outspent their challengers by a fair margin. And there is the case of Salazar, the Democratic Socialist in the mold of Ocasio-Cortez, who triumphed in Brooklyn. So there is a real, but complicated, story of democratic enthusiasm in New York.

The Manhattan Commune was my favorite part of The Difference Engine, incidentally.

Is there any truth to the only googleable information about Salazar seeming to be that people keep catching her in lies and a few organizations have even retracted their support of her.

I fully admit this is the sort of stuff right wing media would latch upon and fan the flames of even if it were only a minor little thing. And maybe despite that she's still the better option available, but she's sounding unreliable even by politician standards. I'd hate to see this movement get "tea partied" with a bunch of people who wave the "single payer, free college" banner while stuffing their own pockets.

That said, I'm not a new yorker, y'all do what you want up there, but I am glad to see the IDC get knocked down a couple of pegs either way.
